Description

Conditional Rarity Gem 1918-S Nickel
Thick Satin Luster

1918-S 5C MS65 PCGS. The striking woes that plague this issue's Philadelphia and Denver counterparts have an even greater impact on the San Francisco Mint's emissions. The average Mint State representative has mediocre texture and practically zero detail on the Indian's braid and the highpoints of the bison.
While this Gem would not be mistaken for a 1938-D, the strike is more than acceptable, with significant detail even at the most troublesome spots. Thick satin luster enhances the eye appeal, as does this piece's lovely rose and lilac patination. The surfaces have no abrasions of note, and any carbon is invisible to the unaided eye. A captivating coin for the condition connoisseur. A conditionally quite rare issue within this popular series. Population: 31 in 65, 1 finer (6/12).
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 2023, which brought $25,300.
(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 22RK, PCGS# 3940)
