    PR68 1915 Buffalo Nickel
    An Essentially Perfect Proof Striking

    1915 5C PR68 NGC. There were seven proof issues in the Buffalo nickel series and the first five struck were struck with a matte finish. The 1915 was the penultimate matte proof issue and is the second-rarest after the 1916. Proofs of all denominations were discontinued after 1916 due to collector dissatisfaction with the matte finish and the mint's reluctance to take the time to prepare proofs of the newly issued silver dimes, quarters, and half dollars.
    A pleasing ring of deep golden-russet patina encircles the steel-blue and silver-gray centers of this piece. Satiny luster glistens over the virtually perfect surfaces. The strike is needle-sharp, as one would expect. A boldly attractive specimen. Census: 3 in 68, 1 finer (4/10).
    From The Brenda John Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 278U, PCGS# 3992)
