I recently added this one to my collection. It's the bug tail 1957 nickel (would say AU-55). This is the first one I found close to MS. How hard they are to find in MS?

Thanks

The best I found in 3 BU rolls was a couple of MS-64 one I had I thought that it would have come close to a MS-65, but come back a MS-64.
I've had many in MS-63

This minor anomaly is very common both in Circ all the way to MS63 .

Nice one! The `57 bug tail had at least 2 different dies for the obverse, which can be seen by two different sets of tool marks among the denticles. I can`t make out which obverse you have, but it would be cool to get both in such sweet shape (should you desire it, of course).

There is a DDO for the bug tail to keep a look out for too, you can see split serifs on the bottom right hand side of the "I" of "DEI" and the "GR" in "GRATIA".
