Description:

MS65 1920-S Buffalo Nickel
Toned Condition Rarity
1920-S 5C MS65 NGC. Despite a mintage of nearly 9.7 million pieces, the 1920-S nickel is a great condition rarity at the Gem level and virtually unavailable any finer. The issue by-and-large was poorly produced and little-saved, making attractive examples a tiny minority. This luminous example has rich green-gold, tan, and magenta hues draping smooth fields and devices that are soft on the high points but far better-defined than the norm. The holder permits examination of the edge, which shows beveling in places, particularly at the upper obverse. Census: 14 in 65, 1 finer (7/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22RS, PCGS# 3946)
