Lot Description
1913-S 5C Type Two MS65 NGC. Broadly lustrous with the surface texture ranging from frostiness to small pools of watery reflectivity. The strike is typically soft, but there are few marks and minimal carbon. Blue-gray and green-gold overtones visit both sides. The 1913-S Type Two nickel largely missed out on the first-year savings effect, and just 1,209,000 of the coins were struck. Census: 68 in 65, 19 finer (7/12). From The Fred Yee Collection.
