Lot Description
1918-S 5C MS65 NGC. The design elements on the current 1918-S offering, while not fully struck, exhibit better definition than ordinarily seen. The date, LIBERTY, and peripheral letters and mint mark are sharp, as is the horn. Lustrous surfaces bathed in soft violet and champagne-gold patination enhance the coin's overall eye appeal. A few unobtrusive grade-consistent marks do not disturb. Mint State examples of the 1918-S can be acquired through MS64 with some concerted effort, but MS65s are elusive and finer coins are virtually unobtainable. Census: 14 in 65, 2 finer (6/09).
