    Amazing 1918-S Buffalo, MS65

    1918-S 5C MS65 PCGS. A stunning Gem with amazing aesthetic appeal, and ranked nearly at the top of the PCGS census for the date. That service has only certified one finer coin. The single finer coin is held in the Gerald Forsythe PCGS Registry Set of Buffalo nickels, the current and all-time finest collection. The Forsythe Collection only has three coins that are less than the finest certified.
    All other collectors will have to wait until Mr. Forsythe decides to sell his collection (if he sells), or consider the present piece as a wonderful alternative. Like nearly every known 1918-S Buffalo, the centers on each side are somewhat weak, but the peripheral detail is bold. The surfaces have attractive light gold toning over brilliant and frosty luster, and the surfaces are nearly flawless. Population: 30 in 65, 1 finer (5/08).
    From Anaconda Rare Coins.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 22RK, PCGS# 3940)

    Weight: 5.00 grams
