Description & Analysis

This was the first in a decade-long string of high mintage nickels that did not end until 1909. While Mint State examples are not rare, those having full strikes are in the minority. Collectors are advised to be selective in choosing one that combines a desirable grade with superior technical aspects.

The best of several repunched date varieties for 1899 is FS-301, formerly touted as an overdate and sometimes still described as such.
