Description:
Important Key Date Gem, Beautifully Toned 1926-S Buffalo Nickel
1926-S 5C MS65 NGC. The 1926-S boasts the lowest certified Mint State population in the Buffalo Nickel series along with the 1924-S, this per Lange (2000). The author also states that Gem quality survivors of the former issue are "nearly unknown." The eye appeal of the present representative is nothing short of breathtaking. Predominantly lilac-blue in the centers (although some slightly deeper colors are noted on the reverse), the peripheries are ringed in intense reddish-orange and golden toning. Both sides shimmer with a satiny finish that is virtually undisturbed by carbon or abrasions. The strike is bold in essentially all areas and well above average for an S-mint delivery in this series. Pedigree concerns compel us to mention a tiny fleck on the obverse over the Indian's cheekbone. Combined NGC and PCGS population for this issue in MS65 is a mere 14 coins, and there is only one MS66 NGC example finer (02/04). (#3959) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 22S7, PCGS# 3959)
