Lot Description
1927-D 5C MS66 NGC. NGC has certified five 1927-D Buffalo nickels in MS66 with none finer, and PCGS has certified three in MS66, also with none finer (4/11). That is an extremely small total population, once one considers the number of people who collect this series. Although shy of a full strike, this Premium Gem shows considerably more detail than most examples of the issue. The surfaces are highly lustrous with vibrant mint frost and incredible iridescent toning on the obverse. The reverse is brighter with gold violet and blue toning. The Buffalo nickel enthusiast will want to bid boldly for this piece.
