Description & Analysis

1925 was a year in which it seems that none of the mints were committed to making good nickels. The Denver Mint edition is usually found poorly struck on all high points, with the first two numerals of the date being particularly deficient. Weakness on the bison's forehead and horn are also common.

As is the case with so many nickels of the 1920s, the reverse dies are more likely to be found heavily worn and eroded, since these could be carried forth to the following year and used until they failed completely. Even some Mint State coins have indistinguishable mintmarks, so heavy is the die erosion. Such coins are not certified by NGC.

The strong prices across all grades for 1925 D nickels reflects both the popularity of this series and the difficulty in finding a nice example of this particular issue. Denver Mint coins never enjoyed the mystique of those from San Francisco, and there was no widespread hoarding of this issue from circulation.

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.
