    Extremely Scarce 1925-S Buffalo Nickel MS65

    1925-S 5C MS65 PCGS. One of the foremost strike rarities in the Buffalo Nickel series and a scarcity at any level of Mint State, the 1925-S emerges as one of the most challenging issues of this popular type at the Gem level of preservation. A soft, frosted sheen over both sides is complemented by delicate accents of golden and sky-blue patina. Just a trace of mushiness is noted on the highpoints of the obverse, although nothing like the deficiency that is normally encountered on Mint State representatives. The reverse, however, possesses an even stronger strike, sharp enough that the presence of the S mintmark almost defies belief. Any 1925-S Buffalo in Gem condition is of the utmost importance to the serious collector of this challenging series. Population: 12 in 65, 1 finer (3/04). (#3956) (Registry values: N7079)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22S4, PCGS# 3956)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
