Lot Description
1919-D 5C MS66 PCGS. The 1919-D Buffalo five cent is one of the more challenging issues to locate fully struck. The forepart of the bison's head is drastically flattened on most pieces, and the horn is somewhat indistinct at its tip. While some minor softness occurs in the fur over the forehead on this Premium Gem representative, the design elements are better defined than usually seen. This includes full delineation on the horn, date, and mintmark. Pastels of soft violet, champagne-gold, and ice-blue envelop the highly lustrous surfaces of each side. Close examination reveals no mentionable contact marks or spots. Population: 14 in 66, 0 finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
