Description & Analysis

The low mintage of proof 1898 nickels has contributed to the scarcity of this date in higher grades. Careless handling and cleaning has limited the number of coins that may be graded numerically, and the overall population is larger than the number certified.

1898 proofs of all denominations were quite well made, and those coins which are choice or gem are typically very appealing.
