Lot Description
1920 5C MS67 PCGS. We present here a sharply struck Superb Gem, unusual for this normally weak issue. Pleasing luster complements this attribute, as do whispers of soft violet and champagne-gold coloration. The well preserved surfaces are devoid of the often-seen coppery streaks resulting from concentrations of the copper alloy that did not blend with the nickel metal (David Lange, 2006, p. 116). Housed in a green label holder. Population: 8 in 67, 0 finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
