This is a U.S. 5c Jefferson nickel feeder finger which was used for striking Jefferson Nickels at the Denver Mint. The feeder finger is one of a small group that came out of the U.S. Mint, and were struck at the Moonlight Mint using the original Grabener coin press that the feeder fingers would have been used on.
The nickel sized feeder fingers are one of the scarcer of the types, with 21 existing. The press was in operation from 1986-2001 at the Denver Mint, which is therefore also the era for this feeder finger.
Until these came out, feeder fingers were nearly unheard of on the coin market. An opportunity to own a fascinating piece of Mint equipment, and something which has caused many error coins over the years!
The feeder finger is struck with "commemorative dies" used by the Moonlight Mint to commemorate the press.
Note: we have a small quantity in stock, so although you will receive one like the one show, it may not be the exact 5c feeder finger shown in the photos.
