1921-S Buffalo Nickel. MS-64 (PCGS). A satiny near-Gem with bold luster and a strike that is better than typically seen for the date; the bison's head and shoulder details are approaching completeness. Largely brilliant on the obverse, with wisps of varied pale orange and gold toning that engage the reverse. Choice for the grade -- undeniably so -- and definitely one of the finest MS-64 examples of the date extant.
