Lot Description
1920 5C MS67 PCGS. Ex: ADM Collection. The mintage of more than 63 million pieces gives an indication that Mint State pieces should be available of this issue. However, very few have survived in MS67 condition. PCGS has only certified eight in this grade, and NGC has graded only five. None are finer at either service (4/10). This is a spectacularly lustrous coin. While basically presenting as brilliant, there is actually just a hint of pink and lilac patina on each side. Fully struck also. From The Brenda John Collection.
