Hello again. I was wondering if this 1998 Nickel is of a "Bare Belly" type or variety?

The only actual bare belly variety is the 1990 bare belly, all other bare bellies are Simply from over polishing if the dies,

Ok thanks again wrekkdd. I didnt know 1990 was the only year for the bare belly. I was looking through a March 2018 issue of a magazine called "The Planchet" that I downloaded from https://www.edmontoncoinclub.com and in it they show a 1998 Bare Belly with values.

I have seen them sell for above face value, anything can be hyped up, much like the 1996 attached 6, I'm pretty sure it's just a die chip but I have seen them sell for tonz.

I would say 100% 1998 is a bare belly as well. Ive also seen them listed as a variety. Have sold quie a few of them as well. Average sale $2-$5 depending on who wanted it at the time. Have hade chips and die cracks on these as well. For those of us that collect errors and varieties, this is one to have. In my opinion anyways. Cool find

It's just a hyped thing, its not an error, it's a simple over polished die and can bee seen on many different years and denominations, people are welcome to collect anything they want but just know what you have. The 1990 bare belly beaver on the other hand is an actual error and as far as I have read there is not a definitive answer as to what caused the vertical raised lines through the bare belly. This is the only year of that I know of for the Bare bellies that isn't just from an over polished die. Much like very minor die chips and die cracks over polishing happens and is very common. But as I said they do carry a small premium due to the hype around the bare belly 1990 which is an error vs other years that are just common over polishing if the dies.
