Lot Description
1928-S 5C MS65 NGC. David Lange (2006) writes of the 1928-S that "Choice specimens are scarce, gems rare, due primarily to deficiencies in strike." He goes on to say that most examples display softness in the date, mintmark, and bison's forehead. This piece is unusually well-defined for an S-mint Buffalo nickel. The surfaces are brightly lustrous with pastel lilac, powder-blue, and rose coloration, and are devoid of mentionable marks. Census: 44 in 65, 8 finer (7/11).
