    Superb Gem 1915-D Nickel
    Sole Finest at NGC

    1915-D 5C MS67 NGC. The 1915-D Buffalo nickel, issued in the amount of 7.6 million pieces, is often a strike-challenged issue, although the viewer would never know it by laying eyes upon this remarkable coin. David Lange writes in his series reference:

    "This is the first date from the Denver Mint in which weakness of strike becomes a factor. Though not extreme, it may be evident in the central obverse and the bison's head, shoulders and tail. Well struck examples do exist and are worth the wait."


    This piece shows no mentionable strike weakness; au contraire, the central braid area, the feathers, the horn and fur on the bison, and split tail indicate a strike that is far above the norm; only the most trivial softness on the buffalo's head and LIBERTY prevent us from calling this a full strike. Full luster prevails throughout the gray-gold surfaces. A special coin for a fine Registry Set. Census: 1 in 67, 0 finer (3/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22R8, PCGS# 3928)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
