1925-D Nickel, Remarkable MS66
Well-Defined, Among the Finest Known

1925-D 5C MS66 PCGS. The 1925-D is among the worst produced of all D-mint nickels and is one of the great strike rarities in the Buffalo series. The bison's head is usually flat, and very few possess complete horn detail. Some examples are known with the E in FIVE filled, and most are characteristically weak in the first two numerals of the date.
The central design motif on each side of the current Premium Gem is very well brought up, actually about as strongly defined as one is ever likely to find on a 1925-D. This is not to say the coin is fully struck; there is the usual softness in the hair on the bison's head, for example. The date digits and LIBERTY are sharp, however, and the bison's horn is full. Likewise, all of the peripheral lettering, including the mintmark, is strong.
In terms of luster quality and surface preservation this coin is nothing less than remarkable. Just a hint of pale golden patina lightly coats each side with complete, satiny underlying luster, and there are no marks or spots worthy of individual mention. The foregoing attributes add up to perhaps what is one of the finest 1925-D nickels extant, and as such, will undoubtedly generate spirited bidding. This is one of only 15 Premium Gems certified by PCGS and NGC, with none finer (6/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22S3, PCGS# 3955)
