Lot Description
1913-S 5C Type Two MS65 PCGS. Unlike their Type One brethren, the Type Two 1913-S Buffalo nickels were not saved in quantity. As a result, Gems from this issue of just over 1.2 million pieces are scarce and finer coins rare. This MS65 piece has luminous surfaces under gold-gray patina. High-point detail is soft but not worn. Struck from eroded dies. From The Richard P. Ariagno, M.D. Collection.
