Lot Description
1926-D 5C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: A D M Collection. Registry collectors are well aware of the bottleneck posed by many 1920s issues, where a particular date becomes a condition rarity at a mid-to-high Mint State grade and is all but impossible to find any finer. With the 1926-D, the bottleneck appears at the MS66 level; PCGS has graded just 23 coins so fine and only one numerically superior example (6/11). This Premium Gem has enchanting patina, light blue-violet at the margins with broad peach interiors, all over warm and swirling luster. Well-defined everywhere but the bison's shoulder and a carefully preserved beauty.
