Sharply Struck 1917-S Nickel, MS67
The Finest Certified

1917-S 5C MS67 NGC. This is the finest 1917-S nickel certified by both of the major services (5/08). It is certainly significant as such, and of the greatest importance to the many collectors of this popular series. Lange points out that the majority of 1917-S nickels are not well struck, but a small number are. Most '17-S nickels also show a significant presence of die erosion, especially around the margins. This particular piece does show some evidence of die erosion and there is also a die crack on the obverse at 8 o'clock. However, the design elements are unusually sharp. This would indicate that this piece was struck from an advanced state of the dies and the die pressure was increased in order to bring out the definition in the dies. The smooth, satiny surfaces show an overlay of subtle rose and lilac on each side. A noteworthy addition to an advanced collection of Buffalo nickels.
