    Captivating, Condition Rarity 1938-D Nickel, MS68

    1938-D 5C MS68 PCGS. As the only issue from the final year of production, 1938-D Buffalo nickels (slightly over 7 million pieces minted) were widely saved in Mint State. This is reflected in a PCGS/NGC population of several tens of thousands of Uncirculated coins. The two services show nearly 3,000 MS67 specimens alone. The population drops precipitously in MS68, however, where only 23 examples have been graded, and none finer.
    Radiant luster exudes from the immaculately preserved surfaces of this captivating Superb Gem. Soft violet patina dominates both sides, splashed with yellow-gold, crimson, orange, and sky-blue accents. Finally, a well executed strike imparts sharp delineation to the design features, rounding out the coin's astounding eye appeal. Population: 8 in 68, 0 finer (3/09).
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 22SZ, PCGS# 3984)
