Lot Description
1915-D 5C MS66 NGC. The 1915-D is known to be generally soft in overall striking details. A small percentage of coins are well defined, however, and this is one of them. The Indian's braid, the hair on top of the bison's head, and the tail definition are all fully detailed on this piece. The mint luster is also above average, its vibrant, satiny sheen fully apparent even through the multiple layerings of color on each side. The centers are light gray-lilac in hue with deeper rings of rose, lilac, and green iridescence around the margins. An outstanding 1915-D and well worth the wait for some lucky collector. Census: 11 in 66, 1 finer (11/10). From The Camelback Collection.
