    1917-S Buffalo Nickel, MS67
    The Sole-Finest Certified at Either Service

    1917-S 5C MS67 NGC. Although NGC has certified 11 examples of the 1917-S Buffalo nickel in MS66 and PCGS has graded 24 at that level, one in MS66+ (with almost certain duplications in those numbers), the present MS67 1917-S nickel is the only one so certified at either service (3/16). Any Registry Set collector pursuing the ultimate such set simply must have this coin, and none other.

    The strike is unusually sharp, producing sculptural detail to all design elements. The knot binding the hair in the Indian's queue is well separated at both top and bottom. All digits of the date are bold, and the hairline is complete. On the reverse, the bison's tail is split, the hair at the shoulder is sharp if not entirely full, and the hair on the head is of similar quality. Contact is, of course, not an issue here and eye appeal is terrific.
    (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22RF, PCGS# 3936)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
