Lot Description
1926-D 5C 3-1/2 Legs MS64 NGC. Ex: Richmond Collection. Certified by NGC as FS-901, as listed on page 436 in the appendix to Cherrypickers' fourth edition, volume two. Once again lapping appears to be the cause, with most of the buffalo's foreleg just above the hoof absent. This piece has golden-gray surfaces with lots of life and tinges of lilac, mint, and ice-blue in the protected areas. A well-struck piece for this notorious strike rarity. Ex: Richmond Collection, Part II (David Lawrence, 11/2004), lot 1286.
