1920-S 5C MS65 NGC....
Memorable 1920-S Buffalo Nickel, MS651920-S 5C MS65 NGC. One could easily cite the lovely original toning, but in this case the bold impression, particularly on the reverse of this normally strike-challenged issue, must take center stage. The strike on the reverse is far and away finer than usual, with a bold full horn and fur on the bison, and nearly a split tail. The braid and central details on the obverse are also sharp, although the bottom halves of the 19 are a bit hazy and some of LIBERTY blends into the rim due to die wear. Both sides, the obverse more so, show orange-peel effect. The patina is a delicate and delightful blend of rose, gold, and olive. A memorable example of this elusive issue. Census: 15 in 65, 1 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22RS, PCGS# 3946)
