Lot Description
1919-S 5C MS64 NGC. The razor-sharp strike exhibited by this charming Choice Mint State specimen is seldom equaled on coins of this date. Regarding the 1919-S Buffalo nickel, Q. David Bowers relates "nearly all will lack detail at the center, and the bison will be rather glossy and smooth, with little fur detail." These areas are strongly impressed on the present coin, and the surfaces are lightly patinated in shades of gold and lavender.
