Lot Description
1921 5C MS67 NGC. The mintage of 10,663,000 Buffalo nickels at Philadelphia in 1921 seems, on the surface, to be significant. However, during the first eight years of the design, the Pennsylvania facility averaged over 46 million pieces per year. This Superb Gem has brilliant satin luster and bold design features with nearly a full strike. It is an amazing piece that exhibits gorgeous gold, blue, and iridescent toning. Census: 12 in 67, 0 finer (4/10). From The Brenda John Collection.
