    1937 Buffalo Nickel, Brilliantly Toned PR68
    Fresh-From-Mint Preservation

    1937 5C PR68 PCGS. CAC. A proof mintage of 5,769 Buffalo nickels was well-received in 1937, the second year of modern proof coinage, and the last proof date for this popular design. In spite of the relatively small mintage, the 1937 is still the most available proof Buffalo nickel, as many examples were saved by collectors at the time of issue. Even so, the date is very scarce at the PR68 level. PCGS has certified only two dozen coins in PR68, with a single example finer (10/15). The present coin is a spectacular example, with brightly mirrored fields that illuminate spectacular multicolored iridescent toning. Radiant ice-blue tones yield to vibrant gold highlights and violet undertones. The design elements are fully brought up, and no flaws are visible to the naked eye. The outstanding visual appeal is attested by the CAC endorsement.
