    Outstanding 1914-S Nickel, MS67

    1914-S 5C MS67 NGC. With a mintage approaching 3.5 million coins, the 1914-S Buffalo nickel is hardly a scarce or rare date, but truly pleasing Choice or Gem Mint State examples are extremely difficult to locate. The example that we present for your bidding consideration is an outstanding piece that will please the finest collector.
    Quicksilver appearance exhibits ice-blue and gold surfaces on the obverse, with the reverse adding tinges of lavender. Remarkably prooflike, especially for an issue that is often found with frosty luster. Die erosion produces some frosty areas near the reverse rim. Fully struck, and appearing much more like a P-mint than an S-mint. The combination of reflective surfaces and sharp details is unusual, as Dave Lange describes in The Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels: "Both mushy and well struck pieces are common; the former are often semi-prooflike."
    The finest NGC certified 1914-S nickels include two certified MS67, one certified MS67 ★ , and one certified MS68 (4/10). PCGS has never certified a '14-S finer than MS66. A review of our auction archives reveals that we sold the single MS68 piece back in 1997, and we sold an MS67 ★ example in 2008. Other than those two sales, we have previously never offered an example finer than MS66. Here is an amazing opportunity for the advanced Buffalo nickel specialist, or for the connoisseur who appreciates exceptional beauty.
