Lot Description
1916-S 5C MS66 NGC. The 1916 Buffalo nickel claims a substantial mintage of 11.8 million pieces, but the issue is rare at the Premium Gem level. The present coin is sharply defined in most areas, but a touch of softness is evident on the bison's shoulder and the central portrait. The unmarked surfaces are delightfully toned in pale shades of gold and blue. Census: 15 in 66, 1 finer (11/10). From The Camelback Collection.
