Description & Analysis

To combat a nationwide coin shortage Congress authorized a freeze on the 1964 date. This issue thus had an abnormally high production that lasted through most of 1965.

Decent examples of the 1964(P) nickel may be found, but collectors searching through uncertified pieces will have to sift through the thousands of rolls that were hoarded at the time. Most of these contain nickels of disappointing quality.

The many doubled-die varieties for this issue apply only to proof coins, and the one desirable variety found for currency nickels is attributed by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.
