1920-S 5c PCGS MS65

DLRC #: 1977095 // PCGS #: 3946

One of the many strike rarities in the Buffalo nickel series from the 1920s, most examples from this date were produced with absolutely terrible strikes that look like a partially melted candle. However, this exquisite gem is well-struck with beautiful golden highlights and astounding luster. A truly special coin that is destined for a high-end collection.
