Unlike many other conditionally challenging Buffalo nickel issues from the 1920s, the 1924-S is elusive in both circulated and Mint State grades. From a limited mintage of just 1.4 million pieces comes this satiny, minimally marked survivor. Well struck for the issue, especially on the obverse, with just a faint trace of scattered carbon that is not readily evident at all angles. Key date coin!
