Description & Analysis

The mintage of Type 2 nickels at Denver was only slightly smaller than its Type 1 production, but there existed no incentive to hoard these coins. The public was under the erroneous impression that the earlier type would be withdrawn and took no interest in the revised design. Thus, this issue is elusive across all grades and has long been perceived as a semi-key in this very popular coin series.

Gems are quite scarce, due both to the overall smaller number of Mint State survivors and the generally poorer quality of 1913 D Type nickels as made. Weak strikes and worn dies are more often seen than for the Type 1 edition.

No varieties have been reported for this issue.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
