    Impressive 1926-S Buffalo Nickel, MS62

    1926-S 5C MS62 PCGS. The 1926-S is the most avidly sought-after issue in the regular series of Buffalo nickels. Coins are needed in all grades by collectors, but the VF grade level is the breaking point as far as price. Any '26-S in mint condition is valued in the multiple thousands of dollars. This is an especially good coin for the advanced collector as it shows no trace of friction over the highpoints. The surfaces have a subdued gray patina with deeper golden around the margins. Weakly struck, as one would expect. There are no obvious or detracting marks on either side.
    From The S.G. Griffin Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22S7, PCGS# 3959)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
