Coin Description:
A magnificent toned premium gem with an exacting strike and fulsome mint frost. The obverse displays a peach center surrounded by grape purple and cerulean blue fields and progresssing to mint green and gold at the peripheries. The reverse shows similar colors but adds a crescent of rainbow toning on the right hand side. There are only two stars awarded to 1951-S Jefferson Nickels and the other is MS64.

Comments:
This is the third of three coins from the recently certified album collection offered for sale by a popular E-Bay seller of toned coins. In my opinion, this is also the most attractive of the three. Simply stunning in every respect except the steps which is unavoidable. I paid 2.5X Numismedia wholesale in November 2010. In fact this coin arrived at my house just two days prior to the 2010 NGC registry awards submission deadline.
