Ron Guth:

1889 was the last year for the Three-Cent Nickel (and for the entire denomination, as well).  For their swan song, the mint produced just over 18,000 Three-Cent Nickels, enough to supply both commercial and collector demand.  Numerous high-grade examples were set aside by collectors, resulting in a Condition Census today that consists entirely of MS67 examples.  The most desirable examples that combine spot-free surfaces with intense luster, a bold strike, and a hint of colorful toning.
