One of many strike rarities in the challenging Denver Mint Buffalo nickel series, even the plate coin for the issue on page 128 of the book <em>The Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels </em>(David W. Lange, 2000 edition) is softly defined over the highpoints. The coin we offer here, on the other hand, is exceptionally sharp with even the bison's head and shoulder on the reverse crisply delineated from the strike. Billowy satin luster, pristine looking surfaces and delicate pinkish-silver iridescence are also impressive attributes for this important strike and condition rarity.
