Description & Analysis

Sales of proof nickels fell during 1891, a trend that accelerated for the remainder of the decade. On the plus side, quality continued to improve over the nadir of 1888-89, and most 1891 proof nickels are sharply struck with brilliant fields. The example illustrated reveals outstanding Cameo contrast and may even quality as one of the very rare Ultra Cameo survivors.
