1915-S Buffalo Nickel. MS-65 (NGC). Satiny gold-gray surfaces. Most design features are sharp including the details of the bison's head, hump, and shoulder. NGC has certified only 80 1915-S nickels as MS-65 or MS-66 (with none finer) over the years since the establishment of that grading service back in 1986, a figure that amounts to scarcely more than three grading events per year.
