Lot Description
1926-D 5C MS65 NGC. While not an absolute rarity in all grades, like the 1926-S, the 1926-D is one of the better known strike rarities in the series. Many coins are clean and lustrous but are so weakly struck that they are undesirable to collectors. While this piece is not fully defined, it certainly has sufficient details to hold its own in any set of MS65 Buffalo nickels. Each side shows deep sea-green and reddish-golden toning with strong underlying mint frost. Census: 24 in 65, 10 finer (5/08). From The George Gee Collection of Buffalo Nickels.
