I'll say AU-58. I think this coin changed hands a few times.

I wouldn't send it in, but it takes a lot for me to want to slab a coin. It is a beauty though and I would certainly put it in a 2x2.

Edit: it really depends on what you plan to do with the coin when you consider grading it. I keep mine for myself so I don't feel the need to spend the extra cash grading them. Nothing I own carries much value, I might grade coins of significant value of I had them. It's not the cheapest thing and I can use the money to invest in more CRH, so that's what I do.

Guessing the tip of the G was pushed over by contact with something else, perhaps another nickel in a bag.

It sure looks like a 1950 to me with maybe some MD on those numbers . I would say die chip on obverse by the G . Do not send in for grading . Too many surface contacts .AU-55 Details face and jaw .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

So Frog..another nickel could gouge that G hard enough to do that or is that also attributed to the weight of however many are in the bag pressing said nickel into the victim nickel :)?

Looking at picture 3, it sure looks like a 1959 to me.
I would like to see a close-up of the 'G' I think it could be a die chip - but if it involves the rim, it could be considered a cud according to Mike Diamond.
