Lot Description
1927-S 5C MS65 PCGS. The 1927-S five cent, coming from a mintage of 3.430 million pieces, is scarce through near-Gem and rare any finer. PCGS and NGC have certified fewer than 40 examples in MS65, and NGC has seen five Premium Gems. No specimens have been graded finer by either service. The present Gem displays a veneer of soft violet, gold-beige, and ice-blue patination over intense luster, and a well executed strike delivers strong definition to the design elements. The impeccably preserved surfaces reveal no mentionable contact marks or spots. A top-notch piece for the aficionado of Buffalo nickels. Population: 20 in 65, 0 finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
