Lot Description
1926-D 5C MS67 NGC. One of several challenging mintmarked issues of the 1920s, the 1926-D poses a special challenge to Registry collectors: With three MS67 coins in the combined certified population (4/10), it is attainable in that grade, but barely. The offering of this Superb Gem, then, must be seen as an uncommon opportunity. The strike is impressive on this coin, particularly at the often-weak bison's shoulder, and the luster is delightful. Blue-to-lavender toning crosses the centers on each side, while the borders are mostly gold with a streak of violet along the words FIVE CENTS on the reverse. From The Brenda John Collection.
