Lot Description
1913-S 5C Type Two MS65 PCGS. The obverse die used to strike this Type Two 1913-S nickel was pushed well past what should have been the point of retirement; the surfaces are startlingly frosty and die erosion is visible all around the margins. The golden touches on the obverse contrast with the fuller antique-gold appearance of the reverse. Housed in a green label holder. From The Fred Yee Collection.
