    It doesn't appear to be in mint condition. That will affect the value, unless it was owned at one time by Ansel Adams.

    Sorry, the Nickel is in used condition. All I know of it's history is that legend has it that it was once used for attaching quick release plates to a Graflex

    Are those scratches, or just cleaning marks?

    I'm on a budget. Will you take $0.02 for it?

    Has it ever been in the same room with a Leica?

    It's not worth the two cents I just gave.

    I'm willing to ship internationally. And I believe it may have been in the same room with an M3.

    Is it sharper than a 5 pfennig? I heard it was soft in the corners, but this appears to have no corners.
    I always liked the Nickels and thought they were more professional than those Cents.
    Will it cover an elephant? The US mint specifies it will cover a rhinoceros, but they are very conservative and I understand it is usable for much larger.

    If I give you my $.02, will you pay shipping?
