    Description

    1925-S MS 65 NGC. One of the key dates in the Buffalo series and scarce in all grades, the 1925-S is also one of the premier strike rarities, with weak details on the bison's head and around the peripheries on nearly every mint state piece seen. Those of us who were privileged to view the Connecticut State Library coins as they arrived in Dallas were astonished to find not one, but two '25-S Buffaloes that could merit an MS 65 grade upon certification. This splendid example, while not quite as sharp on the reverse as the following piece, is better defined on the obverse and incredible overall for the issue. The obverse displays a glowing satiny brilliance and is tinted in golden and blue pastels. Some minor softness is noted on the reverse on the highpoints of the Buffalo and a light golden-gray toning occasionally deepens about the periphery. The population figures that follow do not include these two freshly graded pieces. Population: 4 in 65 (7 in 65 at PCGS), none higher (1 in 66 at PCGS). (NGC ID# 22S4, PCGS# 3956)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
