Description & Analysis

The 1955(P) nickel was widely hoarded for its relatively low mintage, but this issue is a real train wreck. Nearly all seem to have been poorly struck from eroded dies, and a good percentage were coined on dark planchets, as well. The example illustrated is about as nice as this date comes.
