1929-S Buffalo Nickel. MS-66 (NGC). A special example of this San Francisco Mint Buffalo nickel, with better-than-usual striking definition, and only slight incompleteness on the knot of the Indian's hair braid, and the top of the bison's shoulder. Golden-rose coloration is illuminated by strong satin luster, and surface marks are elusive. Scarce as a premium Gem, and rare any finer.
