Just wanted to get an idea on this 1953 S Nickel. It looks beautiful, except the wear on the building and steps on the back. If only it had the steps. It looks great everywhere else though.

What do you think?

Nice coin. I'm thinking AU58 - MS60. Here's what high grade '53 S examples look like:

Thanks! I think its just the lighting/picture angle I took. The fields look pretty clean for a 68 year old coin. Got it out of a coin roll from the bank.

even with the weak strike I can see it at MS63 or 64. there is only a few dollars difference between 63 and 64 so it really doesn't matter much

what at first looks like wear on the reverse is merely a weak strike, something common during the mid-1950s, MS-64, nice find

Typical 1953 S strike (without steps)
I'd say MS64
