Lot Description
1920-S 5C MS64 PCGS. Decently struck for the issue with a quicksilver gloss, this near-Gem has a carbon spot between the bison's head and shoulder but few readily visible marks. Die erosion is noted along the margins where olive and orange-gold tints collect, a sign of the frequent overuse to which U.S. coinage dies were subjected in the 1920s. From The Fred Yee Collection.
