Fabulously Toned 1937-S Nickel, MS68
The Finest Certified

1937-S 5C MS68 NGC. David Lange, writing of the 1937-S nickel (5.6 million mintage) in the third edition (2006) of his book The Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels, says "This issue is common in all grades. It is also the most available S-mint Buffalo nickel in Gem condition." The population figures bear this out. NGC and PCGS combined have graded more than 4,800 coins as MS65, nearly 2,300 in MS66, and 175 MS67s. One coin is NGC-certified MS68, and this piece is the finest graded at the MS68 level.
Iridescent rainbow patina gravitates to the margins of this marvelous specimen, while golden-gray, mauve, and powder-blue toning rests in the center areas. A powerful strike is seen over the design features, and the radiantly lustrous surfaces are immaculately preserved.
From The Brenda John Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22SY, PCGS# 3983)

You gave me several alternatives and explained the pros and cons of each. I concluded that you were someone I could trust and that you would do a good job for me. And you sure did!
