Description & Analysis

Like its P-Mint cousin, the 1956 D nickel may be found with excellent luster. Most, however, have strikes that range only from fair to good. Examples having either 5FS or 6FS are quite rare.

Repunched mintmark varieties are quite limited for a coin having such a large mintage. None have really caught on with collectors.
