Description & Analysis

The typical 1960 D nickel is poorly struck with just average luster. The deeper part of the dies didn't fill on most, exposing the roughness of the pre-strike planchet. Full step coins are exceedingly rare.

Several, very minor, DDR varieties are known, but RPMs are surprisingly few for such a large mintage.
