Lot Description
1919-S 5C MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The 1919-S Buffalo nickel is almost always seen with a soft strike. The present coin is a well detailed MS64+ example, but even this coin shows a little softness on the bison's shoulder and the Indian's hair. A curious mint-made die defect is evident above the bison's back, obscuring part of PLURIBUS. Population: 1 in 64+, 33 finer (4/11).
