    Amazingly Well-Struck Gem 1923-S Nickel

    1923-S 5C MS65 PCGS. CAC. The S-mint Buffalo nickels of the series are legendary for their elusiveness in the higher Mint State grades, particularly a handful of issues from the late teens-early 1920s. A short list at the Gem level would include the 1918-S, 1921-S, the 1923-S through 1925-S, and of course the lowest-mintage 1926-S. This Gem 1923-S Buffalo is certified in a green-label holder and accompanied by the CAC green-label approbation. The strike on this coin is incredible, a simply amazing strike that we are tempted to call full. The tail is split, the bison is shaggy, the horn and eye are complete, and all obverse details are equally pleasing. Obviously beauty and fullness of strike are both in the eye of the beholder, but we recommend a personal inspection, as it will not disappoint. The prevailing color is a light olive-gray, with traces of iridescence on the obverse. Population: 34 in 65, 2 finer (3/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22RW, PCGS# 3950)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
