Lot Description
1923-S 5C MS66 NGC. Buffalo nickel specialists are well familiar with the 1923-S issue as one of the most difficult in the set in high grade. This Premium Gem is a marvelous top-end example, one of less than a dozen certified at this level between NGC and PCGS combined. The strike is much sharper than normal for the issue, and delightful light patina covers the quicksilver surfaces on both sides, pinkish-gold on the obverse with mint, rose, and ice-blue shades on the reverse. The sharp strike further enhances its enormous appeal. Census: 7 in 66, 0 finer (4/10). From The Brenda John Collection.
