    Delightful Premium Gem 1927-D Nickel

    1927-D 5C MS66 NGC. One of the finest examples of this date to be graded and a coin which is clearly head and shoulders above the majority. Note the resplendent surfaces, nary a mark to be found even with the aid of a strong loupe. Furthermore, glowing luster abounds from the fields which is enhanced by delicate iridescent toning on both the obverse and reverse. Rarely are these early Buffalo nickels found with such delightful color and in such exceptional condition. The strike is better than average for this date, and we note a few areas of die roughness below the date and near the reverse rim. Certainly one of the finest reported and the combined NGC and PCGS Population reports tally a total of three coins this high with none seen finer by either service (10/05). Obviously, very few of these survived in mint condition, and many of those originally saved probably found much needed use during the ensuing Depression which swept much of the world in the early 1930s. A specialist's delight.(#3961) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22S9, PCGS# 3961)

    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.
