Description & Analysis

Many rolls of 1941(P) nickels were preserved by speculators, though most of these have since been broken up and the better coins certified. This issue is plentiful in Mint State, but its quality is highly variable. Nice ones may be found, but collectors will have to sift through many pieces to find one sharply struck from fresh dies. More typical is the coin above, which clearly was struck from worn dies having deep furrows in the fields.

Examples displaying five full steps are collectable, but those have six steps are rare enough that only the most determined specialists will seek them.

Sleepers

4/1/2006  — In the coin hobby the term “sleeper” has two widely used meanings. The first and most common refers to a coin whose published value in price guides has not increased for several years and may be ready for an advance. Another kind of sleeper is a coin that sells at auction below its published value, going for less than one would expect in such a competitive environment.
