    Finest Certified 1937-S Nickel, MS68

    1937-S 5C MS68NGC. David Lange, writing of the 1937-S nickel (5,635,000 mintage) in the third edition (2006) of his book The Complete Guide to Buffalo Nickels, says "This issue is common in all grades. It is also the most available S-mint Buffalo nickel in Gem condition." The population figures bear this out. NGC and PCGS combined have graded more than 4,000 coins as MS65, nearly 2,000 in MS66, and about 120 MS67s. A single coin has been seen finer--an NGC-graded MS68 ★ .
    Iridescent rainbow patina gravitates to the margins of this marvelous specimen, while golden-gray, mauve, and powder-blue toning rests in the center areas. A powerful strike emboldens the design features, and radiantly lustrous surfaces are immaculately preserved.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22SY, PCGS# 3983)
