In looking through the full run of the Numismatist, I found this add in the April 1945 edition.I am curious of which coin this is. Since the ad speaks of the Olsen sale, I would think it is not that example.It may be the "Walton" coin as my pedigree shows Dr. Bolt acquired the coin in 1945.
I have been watching PCGS AU-58 Liberty Nickels for almost 2 years. There are only two "+" graded coins, and this has not changed for some time. One 1885 and the other is an 1894. I knew the 1894 was coming up in a Heritage auction for some time and wondered just what it would bring.Well, it just closed at $1,527.50. I know of two AU-58's for sale right now at $320, so that is an $1,200 premium for the plus. This is basically MS-65 money.Someone really wants to end up with the number one everyman set.
