Description & Analysis

This issue is seldom found fully struck, though it tends to be sharper than the problematic nickels dated 1925 D and 1926 D. Luster is usually good, though not enough to result in many gems. Most Mint State 1927 D nickels are disappointing overall.

Two repunched mintmark varieties are known, the better one featuring duplicate mintmarks both above and below the final impression. Also known is a very minor doubled-die obverse.
