    1924-D Buffalo Nickel, MS66
    Extremely Rare This Fine

    1924-D 5C MS66 PCGS. The 1924-D Buffalo nickel draws a modest premium in the upper circulated grades, but its availability does not begin to significantly drop until the Gem level, where it is scarce; in MS66, this Denver issue is a major condition rarity in the series, and finer examples are unknown. This piece is one of only seven Premium Gems at PCGS, and NGC contributes only a single other example in this grade (7/15).

    This unsurpassed representative shows surprisingly little evidence of die erosion for a branch mint issue from this period, although the hair above the Indian's braid and the bison's shoulder and head exhibit predictable striking softness. The surfaces are delicately preserved and display just a hint of light golden toning. The peripheral legends and mintmark are bold.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22RY, PCGS# 3952)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
