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.
