    Colorful MS66 1927-S Nickel
    Eye-Catching Condition Rarity

    1927-S 5C MS66 NGC. Among other things, the low-availability 1927-S nickel provides a striking lesson in how population figures can become distorted. The date is a condition rarity from MS65 up, with a total of 19 MS65 coins known to NGC, five in MS66, and none finer (6/12). While there are three grading events for MS65 coins, by contrast, there are four for MS66 , out of just five events! Either a great coincidence has rendered most MS66 1927-S nickels astoundingly appealing, or resubmissions are afoot. In either case, this is the sole non-Star MS66 coin in the Census Report, though it could look the part of a Star survivor. It is well-defined with delicate jewel-tones over shimmering and semireflective luster, pale emerald-gold at the outer zones with soft sapphire and amethyst shadings at the centers.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 22SA, PCGS# 3962)
