Description & Analysis

Production picked up from the dismal year of 1950, but this issue's mintage was still low for Philadelphia. The typical 1951(P) nickel is less than fully struck and displays mediocre luster. Finding a gem will be challenging, and those having either 5FS or 6FS are quite rare.
