Lot Description
1937-D 5C MS68 S NGC. This MS68 S five cent is the finest NGC-certified 1937-D Buffalo nickel. NGC's assignment of the coveted Star is obvious: The intensely lustrous surfaces are adorned in pastel multicolored toning in shades of blue, rose, and golden; the design elements are sharply defined throughout; and the surfaces are immaculately preserved, very nearly perfect. All this adds up to superior eye appeal. PCGS has also certified a single MS68, making a total of two coins in this ultimate grade. Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7-8/2008), lot 1370, where it brought an amazing $27,000, still the record for a 1937-D. From The Teton Ranch Collection.
