Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 28 Sep-2018 Whoa! This coin will stop you in your tracks! We have NEVER seen as high a grade 1886 nickel. The 86 is one of the KEYS to the series, always sought regardless of condition. A SUPERB coin like this is essentially incomprehensible! Tied with just a single coin for FINEST graded at either service, this coin is making its auction debut in our Regency Auction 28. Legend Rare Coin Auctions is proud to present it in its full glory. A blinding cartwheel luster glows white hot on both sides. A delicate pastel rainbow iridescent tone can be seen near the peripheries blending to an icy silver-nickel-blue and clear gold in the centers. Sharply struck on both sides from a pair of shattered dies, spidery die cracks can be seen throughout the legends adding character to this beauty's stunning visual allure. Using a strong loupe we can only see a few minor mint made planchet flakes, but there really is nothing to detract from the SUPERB eye appeal. PCGS 2, NGC 0. Neither coin has sold in auction, but PCGS has a price of $74,000 on CoinFacts. Really, though a price guide value is useless when the top Registry Set collectors battle it out to add this monster to their sets. Be prepared to see a record price for an 1886 nickel set! Cert.
