A small, yet impressive piece with an appreciable amount of underlying luster that meanders the surfaces and open areas that are seemingly free of any discernible marks. Pleasing in this near-Gem designation." This type was struck 1902-10 for Edward VII. This date is common but not in this quality. The silver five cents was converted to nickel in 1922.
