Lot Description
1918-S 5C MS64 PCGS. Bright quicksilver luster under a layer of patina that ranges from sky-blue to gold-green and olive-bronze. The strike is soft at the inner portrait and the bison's shoulder, but the horn is complete. This deceptively challenging San Francisco nickel issue is a condition rarity any better; PCGS has certified just 32 coins as MS65 or finer (9/11).
