Another coin I got back from NGC this week.
This coin was issued in the 1997 Botanic garden
two coin set. It has a mintage of 25,000

On NGC's 100 greatest modern coin list it is #15

I am happy to get it back with a SP 69 grade.

Very nice! I've always said any Jeff can be box found, this may be the exception.

Very nice. Did they mint 25,000 of these nickels or 25,000 two coin sets.

The way I read it is .. they only made them for the sets and sold 25,000 sets

I wonder if it would have been worth it to get the special "100 greatest" label. What's the extra charge for that?

I've seen this SP a couple times now, what is that exactly? Is it an NGC-specific grading, like Super Proof? Superb Proof? Nice coin, regardless!

Jack, I too just started seeing the SP grade when I was looking for the 1994 matte nickel. I did notice that all the matte proof coins were graded in SP instead of PF, PR, or MS. However, I did some research and this is what I found:


Quote:
Specimen coins are better quality coins than Mint State, but not quite the quality of proof coins. Specimen coins are graded with ten different grades from Specimen 60 to Specimen 70. Specimen 60 is the lowest grade and Specimen 70 is the highest grade. The grades are denoted as SP-60, SP-61, SP-62, SP-63, SP-64, SP-65, SP-66, SP-67, SP-68, SP-69 and SP-70.

I have two 94's a NGC SP 69 and SP 68, but I always keep a eye out for another if it is a good buy

I started seeing those slabs recently and was wondering if this one would come back in one... I did not send the coins in .. I did it through my dealer, so I don't know if it was a option or maybe you have to be a NGC member and active in that registry set

I believe PCGS denotes an SMS.
