Lot Description
1913-S 5C Type One MS68 NGC. A beautifully toned, immensely lustrous example of this most elusive Type One Buffalo nickel issue. Over sharply struck devices and pristine fields, wide bands of violet, gold-orange, and electric-blue patina add vibrancy to the coin's eye appeal. The surfaces seem virtually immaculate, even after close inspection with the aid of a magnifier. The somewhat pebbly reverse surface textures are mint-made, as are the clash marks beneath the Indian's chin and feather. This Superb example is the single finest-graded at NGC, and is tied for numerically finest certified by both grading services, with none finer (3/09).
