Lot Description
1927-S 5C MS65 NGC. The 1927-S Buffalo nickel is a notorious conditional rarity within this widely collected series. Even assuming resubmissions and duplications, NGC and PCGS combined have seen only about three dozen Gems. NGC accounts for 16 submissions in MS65 with one finer (6/12). This MS65 NGC piece offers a bright, satiny surface texture with added sheen in the fields. Intermingled gold and lilac hues blend throughout both sides. The strike is not quite full, but far better-impressed than normal, setting it far apart from the typical example.
