Lot Description
1938-D 5C MS68 PCGS. Essentially perfect to the unaided eye. The strike is bold and sharp, as is typically seen on this final-year issue. Mostly brilliant with a silver-gray finish, though subtle hints of rose color decorate the left side of the obverse and most of the reverse. With a combination of strong characteristics for the issue as a whole, the 1938-D has become one of the most popular Buffalo nickel type issues, and it is readily available in grades through MS66, though MS67 coins become elusive and anything finer is a condition rarity. Population: 8 in 68, 0 finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
