1885 5C Nickel Liberty Head PCGS PR68 (CAC) EX GERALD FORSYTHE



This MONSTER SUPERB Proof is from our December 2019 sale of the Trzaska Collection, lot 165.

This is a sensationally high end and high grade specimen that is tied for FINEST graded! The rarity of the circulation strike 1885 Liberty nickel in GEM Mint State has always put extra pressure on the Proofs, especially in ultra high grades as here.

The PRISTINE, flawless surfaces are flashy with rolling cartwheels that accent the watery mirrored fields. An exacting strike produced devices that are razor sharp with crisp, complete definition on both sides. The surfaces are gently dusted with iridescent pastel tone imparting a vivacious and sensational look to this impressive, exceptionally high end, and beautiful PR68. We really love this coin and are proud to offer it again.

PCGS 4, NGC 3, CAC 3 (we think this coin is 2x beaned). This coin realized a world record price in December 2019 at $17,038. The current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $18,000. A magnificent coin that is worthy of the greatest Liberty Nickel set of all time. These has not been another for sale in the last 5 years!
