Description

1918-S Buffalo Nickel, MS65
Sharply Defined for This Usually Weak Issue

1918-S 5C MS65 NGC. Specialists have long recognized the 1918-S as the rarer of the two mintmarked issues from this year. It is rarely seen with complete definition on each side. This piece shows well above-average sharpness on the reverse, while the obverse is typically a bit soft on the Indian's hair above the knot. Bright mint frost covers each side with an overlay of attractive pale champagne-gold and ice-blue patina. Just a couple of minor bagmarks are seen, none worthy of singular mention. The "beard" clash mark below the Indian's chin is from the motto on the reverse, an interesting foible that several early S-mint Buffalo issues show. An elusive and in-demand Gem. Census: 14 in 65, 1 finer (2/13).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 22RK, PCGS# 3940)
