Lot Description
1924-S 5C MS65 NGC. The mintmarked Buffalo nickels of the 1920s are rife with condition and strike rarities, and the low-mintage 1924-S certainly qualifies on the condition side. NGC has graded just 17 examples as MS65, this piece among them, and just two coins finer (6/11). The strike is strong on this Gem, with only the bison's shoulder showing appreciable softness, and both sides offer a mix of mustard-gold, peach, and sage shadings over warm and satiny luster. A carefully preserved S-mint representative with great appeal in both the aesthetic and collectible senses.
