Lot Description
1937 5C MS68 NGC. As befits the high mintage of 79.5 million pieces, this is one of the most common dates in the Buffalo nickel series, with examples readily available in all grades. Nearly 12,000 specimens have been certified by NGC and PCGS in MS65 and MS66, and a little over 600 are graded MS67. In the lofty grade of MS68, however, NGC and PCGS have combined for just nine coins, with none finer (3/09). This specimen displays delicate iridescent, ice-blue, gold-beige, and lilac patina over near-pristine surfaces that exhibit dazzling luster. Boldly detailed with immense visual appeal. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
