Hi everyone. Well today I decided to write just a little about the 'Nickel'. Now I'm not going to give all the stats on them there are just to many. However when I was looking for one in the Deluxe Red Book I realized how many pages were dedicated to it. I would say more than a hundred easy. From the shield nickel up to Jefferson. The amount of information is to me was just to much to take in. It's an absolutely wonderful coin. A regular workhorse. It's been changed many times. There are many types different sets within sets. It has varieties doubled dies just about everything you want in a coin. I like the Buffalo and I enjoy reading about the design the different discussions on how many Indians were used who were they even the Buffalo himself. There out there to collect some with dates some without. I don't believe in raising the date. I believe that has slowed down. There are plenty with dates. There also affordable. I have a picture of a beautiful 1938 D Mint State 67! Check the price it's very affordable. I also like the Jeferson. Probably my favorite. It to is a workhorse and has a wonderful design. Not to many years ago my son and myself put the complete set together and came in way under the dealer's price. I also have many slabed. The 1994 P and the 1997 Botanical. Two great coins in a great set. Then there's the Set inside the set. The Keelboat, the Buffalo, and the rest of them. I like the new image of Jefferson and I always liked the reverse of Monticello. A classic design. So when you have time look them up you might like to collect them. There available they have doubled dies they have everything your looking for in a coin any coin. By the way for those against the cent you would be very surprised at how much copper is in the Nickel and how much is in the cent. I'm not going to tell you look it up. Shock! So there is a coin that goes back to the 1800's to 2018. There are many ways to collect these any way you want. That's the fun part. It's also a serious coin. It's also an enjoyable coin to collect. So take a look you might like what you see. The M.S. 67 has a beautiful golden hue. It really adds to it. Some of the others that are matte turn a nice light blue to them. So I hope you enjoyed this and there were no technical facts mintages who designed what. I just wanted to talk about the Nickel. I hope you enjoy them. That's why I tell my family never pay exact price I want change to go through and I have received some beautiful nickels in change. Take care have a great 2018. Mike.
