The 1906 Liberty Head Nickel set a new high bar for mintages in the Nickel series -- the 38 million plus pieces struck this years was the highest since the series was inaugurated in 1866.  As expected, this date is very common, but like most of the dates in the 1900s, it is impossible to find truly superb examples.  Per the PCGS Population Report, the best example certified by them is a single PCGS MS66+.  No PCGS MS67 has appeared on the market in the 25+ years PCGS has beenb in business, and it is not for lack of trying...there is a cluster of MS66s just waiting to break the MS67 barrier.
