Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 43 Feb-2021 This is a WONDERFUL GEM example of this very popular Washington nickel. Part of a series of nickel patterns that featured the busts of George Washington and the recently slain Abraham Lincoln. The bust of Washington was based on the 1785 bust by Houdon. IN GOD WE TRUST above, date below. Reverse: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above an olive wreath, with a large 5 in the middle. Struck in nickel with a plain edge, listed as Rarity-6- with approximately 13-30 minted. Highly reflective fields beam from all over. There is a light roughness, mint made, in the planchet, suggesting this may be a restrike. The devices have a sharp strike and rich frostiness, creating a wonderful contrast. A blush of gold can be seen, especially on the reverse rim. One of the FINEST graded of the variety. PCGS 0, NGC 1. The most recent PR66 from either service was a PCGS-graded example we sold in December 2016 for a record $5,875. This coin was sold in 2014 for $4,113. What a great type that will delight any pattern or nickel specialist. Good luck. Cert. Number 2005740-009 PCGS # 389893.00
