Lot Description
1929-D 5C MS67 NGC. The present 1929-D Buffalo nickel offering is truly special. Not only is it one of the two finest certified examples (one each by NGC and PCGS), but it exudes outstanding eye appeal, resulting from the synergistic combination of its luster, color, strike, and surface condition. Thick, satiny luster over both sides appears to reach out to the observer, as does the veneer of soft ice-blue and lilac patina imbued with warm yellow-gold accents. And while the issue has the reputation of being weakly struck, this Superb Gem is crisply defined, including strong detail on the Indian's braid and the bison's tail. Finally, close examination with a loupe reveals no marks or spots either in the fields or concealed within the motifs. This is a great coin that will satisfy the most discriminating collector. According to our records, neither of the two MS67 coins certified has sold at public auction. From The Teton Ranch Collection.
