Lot Description
1913-S 5C Type Two MS66 NGC. Well struck with just a hint of softness noted on the bison's head and shoulder; and on the word LIBERTY along the upper right obverse border. Lovely mint-green and silver toning adorns the softly lustrous surfaces. This Type Two example is from the first year of the series, and represents a minor design change that altered a mound beneath the bison's feet, changing it to a thin border that was easier to strike up. Census: 16 in 66, 6 finer (9/08).
