Lot Description
1920-S 5C MS65 PCGS. Ex: A D M Collection. With a mintage just shy of 9.7 million pieces, the 1920-S nickel is more readily available than many of its S-mint brethren in circulated grades, but in Mint State it becomes a noteworthy condition rarity, particularly at the Gem level. This is a charming example with light gold-orange patina over quicksilver luster. Though the centers show minor softness, the bison's head and its all-important horn are boldly defined. Marks are few and the eye appeal is high. PCGS has certified just 16 pieces as MS65 and only one finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
