Lot Description
1925-D 5C MS66 NGC. As Q. David Bowers writes in his Guide Book of Buffalo and Jefferson Nickels, "Connoisseurs have long viewed it as a challenge to find a decently struck 1925-D that has good eye appeal." While the strike of this Superb Gem survivor cannot be said to be full, particularly on the bison's shoulder, the definition is above-average for the issue, and the eye appeal easily outpaces the norm. Frosty luster swirls beneath light layers of gold and heather toning. There are no singularly mentionable marks on the exquisite surfaces. Census: 11 in 66, 0 finer (4/10). From The Brenda John Collection.
