Description & Analysis

1919 D nickels are moderately scarce across all grades. Unlike the San Francisco Mint Buffalo Nickels, those from Denver were not routinely hoarded from circulation, as they simply lacked the S-Mint mystique. This accounts for their greater rarity in circulated grades despite similar mintages in most years.

Mint State pieces are not truly rare, but their typical quality is very deficient. Most are less than fully struck, though a few exceptional pieces are known. Gems are very rare.
