Description & Analysis

Many rolls of 1941(P) nickels were preserved by speculators, though most of these have since been broken up and the better coins certified. This issue is plentiful in Mint State, but its quality is highly variable. Nice ones may be found, but collectors will have to sift through many pieces to find one sharply struck from fresh dies. More typical is the coin above, which clearly was struck from worn dies having deep furrows in the fields.

Examples displaying five full steps are collectable, but those have six steps are rare enough that only the most determined specialists will seek them.

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.

To these popular usages I’d like to add a third...
