Unc (10: 3,3,4) Well struck with a few light spots and an edge bump limiting the grade. The reverse is very choice. This is the very desirable Snow-3 die pair properly graded in the MS holder. This die pair was struck in late 1856 in a simulated press run to test all the issues that may arise when a new metal is being used. Along with being the nations first nickel coinage, it was a new size, and the strikability was needed to be tested. The Snow-3 die pair is therefore attributed as the original striking of this popular coin. It was so popular that Proof were restruck and sold to collectors in the few years following. It is very important that this is graded in the MS holder by PCGS, as many true MS coins are graded as proofs.
