Description & Analysis

Many examples of this very common date are highly lustrous and faintly prooflike as a consequence of having been coined with retired proof dies. Most, however, are deficient in strike, particularly at their centers. Though the certified population of 5FS coins is fairly low, this figure is among the higher ones for nickels of the 1960s.

Of the many doubled-die varieties for 1962(P) nickels, a few of the DDRs merit attention from collections. As of this writing, however, they have not attracted much interest.
