Lot Description
1913 5C Type One MS68 NGC. The 1913 Type One Buffalo nickel is always in great demand as a first-year-of-issue date and a one-year type coin. The present coin is a virtually unimprovable specimen of this popular date. As one would expect, the surfaces on this piece are nearly perfect. We also see no trace of carbon spotting. Each side has pronounced mattelike granularity, as always seen on this issue, and the striking details are fully brought up in all areas. This example shows pale violet, powder-blue, and light gold toning over vibrant luster, which is given a shimmering quality by the textured surfaces. The perfect type coin or perhaps the perfect coin for the collector assembling a Registry Set of Buffalo nickels. Census: 11 in 68, 0 finer (2/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
