Lot Description
1920 5C MS67 NGC. The 1920 nickel, with a mintage of more than 63 million pieces, is a fairly common date through the MS64 level. Even Gem and Premium Gems can be obtained with a little patience and searching. However, Superb Gem examples, such as the one in the current lot, are very elusive. Indeed, NGC and PCGS combined have seen fewer than 15 MS67 pieces, and none finer. A thin coat of iridescent ice-blue, lilac, and yellow-gold patina adheres to radiantly lustrous surfaces that are free of mentionable marks. Unlike frequently seen 1920 specimens that are softly struck, this coin exhibits well defined motifs. A simply beautiful Buffalo nickel! Census: 5 in 67, 0 finer (6/07).
