Lot Description
1927-D 5C MS66 NGC. When we last sold this coin over three years ago we described it as "one of the finest examples of this date to be graded." That statement still holds true today, and neither NGC nor PCGS has certified a single example finer. Only four specimens have been graded at the MS66 level by NGC (6/09). The resplendent surfaces appear remarkably clean, even with the aid of a loupe. Furthermore, glowing luster in the fields is enhanced by delicate iridescent gold and rose toning on both the obverse and reverse. Rarely are these early Buffalo nickels found with such delightful color and in such exceptional condition. The strike is better than average for this date, and we note die crumbling around the margins on each side. A specialist's delight. From The Victoria Collection.
