Lot Description
1917-S 5C MS65 PCGS. Many 1917-S nickels are softly struck, and even when those pieces are found well-preserved, they do not qualify as Gems. This is an especially well-defined example that has complete definition on the reverse and notably strong detailing on the hair on the obverse. The soft mint frost is unaffected by any noticeable abrasions, and each side has a slight overlay of rose-colored toning. Population: 79 in 65, 22 finer (1/11).
