1919-S Buffalo Nickel. MS-64 (PCGS). Rather boldly struck overall for a '19-S Nickel, the only areas of mentionable lack of detail are confined to isolated portions of the peripheries. Satiny silver-gray surfaces with a tinge of champagne-apricot iridescence coming into view on the reverse at more direct angles. A find for the high-grade Buffalo Nickel collector familiar with the sharp price increase this issue undergoes between the MS-64 and MS-65 grade levels.
