Mint: Philadelphia Mintage: 12,530,292 Catalog: KM-112 Obverse Designer: Charles E. Barber Reverse Designer: Charles E. Barber Composition: Copper-Nickel Weight: 5.00 Grams Diameter: 21.2 mm Edge: Plain Though its mintage fell below that of the previous year, the 1899 nickel is reasonably typical through the lower Mint State qualities. Only gems are limited. Many coins of this date are much less compared to totally struck, though the boring luster seen on nickels of the late 1880s and also very early '90s is not as widespread. At the very least two repunched mintmark ranges are known for this day, as well as both are interesting adequate to carry moderate premiums.
