ANA Preview of Rarity Part II: 1913 Liberty Nickel Takes Center Stage

     One of the top attractions from this Stack’s Bowers sale will surely be the 1913 Liberty Head Nickel graded PCGS PR66 with the CAC approval and is the finest known coin.

With just five coins total certified by PCGS and NGC, opportunities to acquire a rarity like this are rare indeed. This will certainly be the centerpiece of the Rarities Night session at this ANA event....
