Lot Description
1915-D 5C MS66 NGC. Ex: Yankee Collection. The following comments by David Lange regarding this issue are instructive: "This is the first date from the Denver Mint in which weakness of strike becomes a factor. Though not extreme, it may be evident in the central obverse and the bison's head, shoulders, and tail. Well struck examples do exist and are worth the wait." This remarkable Premium Gem is not only well struck, the design elements seem virtually full and complete throughout. Attractive champagne-bronze toning adorns the satiny surfaces, which are immaculately preserved. Census: 11 in 66, 1 finer (3/09).
