||FIVE-CENT PIECES - JEFFERSON
||5C 1974 D
||NGC MS 67
INITIAL ACQUISITION: Purchased, already slabbed, in a Great Collections auction in January 2012. I was the only bidder.
OBVERSE: Light and thin scratches. *Very* shallow but obvious scrapes across the collar resemble a lamination error - the marks are obvious, but not that they are actually scrapes.
REVERSE: 6/6/5/6 full steps, EXCEPT that the steps are falling to the right between the third and fourth pillars. This is a STRONG MS 67 reverse with super clean strike and really minor scratches.
