    Important Key Date Near-Gem 1926-S Nickel

    1926-S 5C MS64 PCGS. The undisputed key to the Buffalo nickel series in high grades, the 1926-S is a low mintage date with just 970,000 pieces produced. This conditionally scarce near-Gem was probably produced from the mating of a new (obviously) 1926-dated obverse and a leftover reverse.
    An attractive, well balanced example with equal tonal qualities from side to side as well as similar softness of strike on the highpoints of the design. The coin is actually quite well brought up for a '26-S, with only minor weakness on the braid of the Indian and perhaps half of the hair present on the bison's foreleg. There is an attractive overlay of golden toning with multicolored accents that adds even more to the desirability of this important coin. (Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22S7, PCGS# 3959)
