A rare 2005-S Western Waters proof nickel with a long unpolished die area under the date. With just 3 million produced this is a rare occurring event, on a proof coin. In just 6 months of minting, there have been numerous errors in the westward journey series proof coins that stand out from all others. This is one of them. It was discovered by me after purchasing a group of 2005-S proof nickels. I almost missed it completely, and it was the camera that brought this to light. I have gone thru ten years of 2005 coins, but found only this one. Typically the mint would have this corrected quickly. These are carefully inspected one at a time and struck twice. This is highly unusual on any of the five coins in the series. Never seen for sale or in auction. Don't miss this one. Rare means low number count. And this one qualifies.
