1936 Buffalo Nickel, PR68
Satin Finish, Only One Finer Coin at PCGS

1936 5C Type One--Satin Finish PR68 PCGS. CAC. The Type One or Satin Finish pieces of 1936 were the first widely distributed proof Buffalo nickels in two decades. Unfortunately, contemporary collectors still preferred the brilliant finish proofs, and complaints caused the Mint to switch to that style later in the year. Present-day collectors appreciate the quality of the Satin finish examples, which are harder to locate than their Type Two counterparts. This richly toned piece ranks among the finest survivors. Exquisitely detailed devices emerge from shining, satiny fields. Pale ice-blue patina graces the centers, while deeper gold and peach shadings prevail near the rims. Virtually flawless and undeniably appealing. PCGS has graded only one finer example (4/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 278X, PCGS# 3994)
