NGC 5c Jefferson Nickel 65% Off-Center on Silver Dime Planchet UNC


NGC Jefferson nickel struck 65% off-center on a silver dime planchet. Off-center nickels on silver dime planchets are much scarcer than those on clad planchets, although both are generally rare. The coin isn't showing a date, but the strike is nicely positioned in that it shows the front of Jefferson's face.

NGC UNC details scratched, with a short scratch beneath Jefferson's chin which isn't obvious at a glance. We did some research and this exact coin used to be in a problem-free NGC MS-61 holder, but someone must have cracked it out seeking an upgrade. Nice coin despite the scratch.
