Description Technical Specs Extended Information
Both the reverse and obverse designs of the 1953 5 cent saw two types:  the obverse had the Shoulder Fold and No Shoulder Fold types, while the reverse had a Near Leaf and Far Leaf variety.  The crossing of these two types (mixing front and back) resulted in two scarce varieties, the No Shoulder Fold with Near Leaf and the Shoulder Fold with Far Leaf.  Scarce even in low grades, these 'mule' varieties are virtually unheard of in Mint State.  This  SF far leaf coin is tied for finest known with 3 other coins graded by PCGS, with the next finest far below at AU55. (3/11)  Only a few tiny particles of rust hide between the obverse denticles, hinting at the steel below the shining chrome finish.  A worthy companion to the MS65 NSF near leaf coin also offered here, or a magnificent centrepiece in its own right.
Denomination: 5c
