Liberty Head Five Cents

Description & Analysis
This is one of the more challenging issues to find with a full strike. Gems are elusive for this date, and this is especially true of those having sharp strikes, as this is not necessarily a component of certified grading.
Only one repunched date variety is known for 1890, but it's intriguing enough to be included in The Cherrypickers' Guide and is also recognized by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.
