    Despite a fairly high mintage for a D-Mint nickel of the time, 1918 D is rather scarce in Mint State. Those which have survived are typically of poor quality. Weak strikes from moderately to heavily worn dies are the norm. Circulated examples are likewise scarce, due primarily to this coin type's shallow, exposed dates that wore away within 15-20 years.

    PCGS 64 in EX45, and 793 graded higher, PCGS pricing is at $275
