Description:
PR68 1915 Nickel
Superlative Color and Eye Appeal
1915 5C PR68 NGC. This is a spectacular Superb Gem example of the next-to-last Buffalo nickel proof issue, struck in the quantity of 1,050 coins. It is a certainty, despite the mintage figure, that few survive in as pristine a state of preservation or with such remarkable eye appeal. The surfaces are contact-free and boast a razor-sharp strike, as expected. More importantly, the center obverse displays remarkable ice-blue patina that complements golden-brown rim accents. The reverse offers similar colors but somewhat more evenly intermingled. A few minor flecks appear below the bison's head but fail to detract from this marvelously attractive coin. Census: 3 in 68, 1 finer (4/12).
From The Leonard Raines Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 278U, PCGS# 3992)
