Description & Analysis

Though sales of minor proof sets were a bit higher than usual in 1905, this date is still noticeably more scarce than those of the 1880s and early '90s. 1905 proof nickels were quite well made in terms of strike, brilliance and planchet quality, though very few will display enough contrast to be labeled Cameo.
