    1937 Buffalo Nickel, Colorful PR68+
    Exceptional Brilliant Proof Type Coin

    1937 5C PR68+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The resumption of proofs in 1936 initiated a return to the brilliant proof format preferred by collectors of the day, with deeply mirrored fields and full strikes highly prized by all. This is a particularly high-end 1937 Superb Gem example, with attractive gold, heather, and pale-lilac toning that intensifies on the reverse. The bison's head, fur, and musculature are pinpoint sharp. This is an accessible date even in high grade, but seldom seen finer. Population: 52 in 68 (3 in 68+), 2 finer. CAC: 19 in 68, 0 finer (8/20).(Registry values: N2998)
