Gem 1926 5 Cents Far 6

George V 5 Cents 1926 Far 6, From our January 2010 Auction of the Canadiana Collection, where it was described, "KM29, MS65 PCGS. The two rarest George V 5 Cents pieces are the 1925 and 1926 Far 6, the former important as a date and the latter as a variety. The reported mintage for all 1926 5 Cents pieces was 938,162 coins, although the breakdown between Near 6 and Far 6 coins is unknown. Examination of combined NGC and PCGS population totals for all grades suggests that the 1926 Far 6 coins are more elusive than the 1925 5 Cents. The two grading services have certified 161 of the former and 236 of the latter. The data suggests a production of about 135,000 examples of the 1926 Far 6 coins.

An amazing Gem, this 1926 Far 6 nickel is extremely rare in such high grades. PCGS has only certified three MS65 pieces, including this coin, with none finer. In all Mint State grades, the total PCGS population is only 18 coins, the lowest population of any George V 5 Cent piece. This boldly detailed Gem is highly lustrous, with satiny gray surfaces and faint champagne toning to enhance its eye appeal. The Belzberg coin was MS63 and the Dominion Collection piece was MS64. The Norweb Collection had a VF example. In our own Permanent Auction Archives, we record the Dominion and Belzberg coins as the top examples we have auctioned prior to this offering. The present opportunity is extremely important and should be met with enthusiasm. The new owner will prize this incredible piece for years to come."
