    1914 Buffalo Nickel, PR68
    Delicately Toned Registry Coin
    Tied for Finest Known

    1914 5C PR68 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1914 is one of the best-struck matte proof issues in the Buffalo nickel series, popular with type collectors. Examples can be found with little difficulty through PR66, and PR67 coins are occasionally seen. Finer pieces, however, are rare. This PR68 coin is tied for the finest 1914 proof certified at PCGS (4/20). We have only handled a 1914 proof in this grade on 15 prior occasions since 1993, including multiple appearances of some examples. The design elements are fully struck, and the satiny, textured matte surfaces yield lovely lilac and champagne toning. Eye appeal is exceptional. Population: 17 in 68, 0 finer (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 278T, PCGS# 3991)
