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 The public was under the erroneous impression that the earlier type would be withdrawn and took no interest in the revised design.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.
