    1928-S Nickel, MS66+
    Exceptional Strike and Preservation

    1928-S 5C MS66+ PCGS. Examples of the 1928-S Buffalo nickel are plentiful in circulated and lower Mint State grades. However, strike deficiencies usually put an upper limit of MS64 or MS65 on Uncirculated survivors. Premium Gems are much more elusive. This impressive example is high-end for the MS66 level and conditionally rare as such. The date, braid, horn, and reverse legends all show crisp detail, while minor incompleteness is relegated to the tips of the bison's head and tail. Still, the overall impression is exceptionally strong. Golden-orange patina and vibrant mint frost further contribute to the appeal of this top-quality 1928-S nickel. Population: 18 in 66 (2 in 66+), 2 finer (8/20).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22SD, PCGS# 3965)

    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.
