Description & Analysis

This is another poorly made entry in the sad tale of 1960s Jefferson Nickels. Incomplete strikes from worn or weakly hubbed dies are commonplace, and the specimen illustrated is sharper than most.

The Philadelphia Mint focused primarily on 1964-dated coins during 1965, and just 972,000 nickels bearing the 1965 date were actually struck during that year. The majority of this date's nickel production occurred in 1966, with Philadelphia contributing only 11,468,000 that year. To further combat the coin shortage then ongoing, all mintmarks were omitted through 1967, and Denver struck 82,291,380 1965 nickels during 1966. San Francisco added 41,400,000 more, all of them anonymous.

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.
