    Premium Quality Gem 1936 Type 1 Nickel

    1936 5C Type One--Satin Finish PR66 PCGS. Some of the proof Buffalo nickels delivered in 1936 display a satin finish--the only coins in the series to do so. The present Gem should be of obvious importance to the numerous collectors in today's hobby who are assembling complete business strike and proof sets of the Buffalo nickel series. The reverse displays golden-orange toning that is interrupted in the center by steel-blue color. The otherwise olive-hued obverse exhibits a blush of orange-tan iridescence over the Indian's face. The bright, satiny surfaces are free of bothersome handling marks. We do, however, note a few small spots that are dotted over each side. (NGC ID# 278X, PCGS# 3994)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
