Lot Description
1918-S 5C MS63 NGC. Luminous gold-orange and sage shadings drape each side of this Select S-mint nickel. The strike is substantially above-average with only trifling softness at the central braid and the bison's shoulder. Despite a mintage of nearly 4.9 million pieces, the 1918-S was little-saved at the time of release and elusive in pleasing Mint State.
