1897 ushered in a period of consistently high annual mintages that extended through the end of this series in 1912, the only exceptions being the Denver and San Francisco strikings of that final year.

High mintages did not equate to high quality. In fact, these later dates are rather difficult to find with full strikes. The dies were run too long, with erosion appearing in the form of granular or pebbly texture at the peripheries. The coin above illustrates the effects of poor striking and die erosion, though it may still achieve a high certified grade on the basis of luster and surface quality.

There are numerous repunched date varieties for the 1897 nickel, though only one is compelling enough to interest general collectors.
