Owner Comments:

This is technically one of the best nickels in this set. By the naked eye there are no discernable blemishes and even using a 15x loupe only 2 small nicks are observed (one well hidden in the hair and another just to the left of the forth column at the edge of the portcullis. This has the cleanest jaw of any nickel I have seen with no planchet roughness at all.

While not designated FS, this coin will be sent back in to see if it merits the designation. While the area under the 3rd pillar is somewhat weak, by my eye the step count should be 6-6-5-5.
