Lot Description
1917-D 5C MS66 NGC. The 1917-D has a deserved reputation as a generally poorly produced issue, with the vast majority of survivors showing inferior detail on the central devices. This satiny and carefully preserved example offers a delightful exception, with only trifling softness at the bison's shoulder and excellent detail on the horn and the Indian's braid. Delicate pink, gold, and blue patina drapes the surprisingly mark-free surfaces. Spectacular eye appeal for the issue. This is one of just six Premium Gems certified by NGC, with none numerically finer at either NGC or PCGS (6/12). Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7-8/2008), lot 1567.
