Lot Description
1919-S 5C MS64 PCGS. The 1919-S Buffalo nickel issue is among numerous S-mint keys within the series, and it is an issue notorious for overall strike weakness. This piece displays moderate overall strength of strike for the issue. The fields are semiprooflike, complementing pale pastel patina in shades of lilac and rose. Seldom seen finer; PCGS has graded only 34 submissions in higher grades -- 31 in 65, 1 in 65+, 2 in 66 (6/12). From The Color Collection.
