Lot Description
1915-S 5C MS66 PCGS. Champagne-gold patination dominates the obverse, restricting whispers of lavender and powder-blue to portions of the borders. The reverse displays pastel powder-blue, straw-gold, and olive-green. Poorly struck examples are the norm for this issue, making the current example an important exception. The design features are generally well brought up, including boldness on the date, the braid, the hair on the bison's head, and the reverse legends, motto, and mintmark. Only the curve of the tail and the hair above the braid are incomplete. The satiny surfaces are impeccably preserved. Population: 27 in 66, 3 finer (4/10). Ex: Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 654, which realized $5,750. From The Brenda John Collection.
