Lot Description
1924-S 5C MS65 NGC. The 1924-S is among the rarest Buffalo nickels in the finer (VF-AU) circulated grades. Unsurprisingly, Mint State survivors are also elusive. The surfaces are interestingly patinated, and this coin displays medium density rose-tan and ice-blue toning over both sides. The strike is stronger than usually seen on this difficult branch mint issue and there are no reportable abrasions. Census: 17 in 65, 2 finer (11/10). From The Camelback Collection.
