Ron Guth:

The 1891 Liberty Head Nickel is a common coin, thanks to the largest mintage thus far in the series. Mid-range Uncirculated examples are very easy to locate, and even Gems (MS-65) can be found with ease. In typical fashion, this date becomes scarce in MS-66, and anything finer is exceedingly rare. The best example certified by PCGS is a single PCGS MS67.
