Lot Description
1916 5C MS67 PCGS. The mintage of the 1916 Buffalo nickel was an enormous production totaling nearly 64 million coins, but today this Superb Gem is one of only 11 in this finest grade at PCGS (6/10). Nickel-gray surfaces show a light blush of pink, and the near-total lack of abrasions puts this piece into the small minority. The sharp strike leaves the bison's horn and fur well-detailed, and there is a split tail. A superlative example for a type or complete set.
