    Description

    1929 5C MS66 NGC. One would think that Premium Gem examples of this date would abound, given its plentiful mintage exceeding 36 million pieces. But incomplete strikes are the norm, partially due to wear on the master hubs and partially because of relatively wide die distance. This example is a pleasing exception, however, with good definition on both sides and pretty lilac-gold coloration. The reverse is especially sharp, with a bold full horn, sharp detail on the bison, and a split tail. The radiant surfaces show considerable orange-peel effect.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22SE, PCGS# 3966)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
