Lot Description
1917-S 5C MS65 PCGS. Attractive olive-gray and mint-green toning adorns each side of this well preserved Gem. Typically soft on parts of the bison, with satin luster and mark-free surfaces that show a few unimportant flyspecks. The 1917-S is one of the scarcer issues in the series in all Mint State grades and Gems are especially difficult to locate. Population: 80 in 65, 22 finer (8/10). From The Helen Gates Kirk Collection.
