    1924 Nickel, Attractively Toned MS67
    Tied for Finest Known

    1924 5C MS67 PCGS. CAC. In an article published in Numismatic News dated November 25, 2008, Paul M. Green notes that the Philadelphia Buffalo nickels as a whole are overlooked, and he also highlights the 1924 as the most challenging (and most expensive!) P-mint issue of its period. This Superb Gem, tied with 10 others at both services for finest in the combined certified population, is immensely lustrous beneath delicate nickel-blue patina that shows apricot-tan and lavender peripheral accents. An excellent strike, with a "chin-whiskers" die clash below the portrait's chin adding interest. The series enthusiast should take a close look at this beauty. Population: 7 in 67, 0 finer. CAC: 5 in 67, 0 finer (11/18).
