Our latest iAuction event is chock full of coins that should be of significant interest to just about any collector, including copper, nickel, silver, and gold coins. This week’s spotlight falls on a Gem Mint State 1925-S Buffalo nickel in a NGC MS-66 holder. This pale golden Gem is sharper overall than typically found for the date, especially on the reverse. A die clash from the reverse gives the obverse Indian a “chin whisker” appearance.
Though not a key date in the design type, the 1925-S is elusive enough in high grades that finding an example is not often as easy as one might suppose. In fact, the specimen offered in the latest iAuction is one of just two called MS-66 by NGC – it might even be the same coin listed twice – with none finer in a NGC holder. For comparison, we note that PCGS has certified just one example of the date at MS-66 with none graded finer by that firm.
If you’d like to own one of the three finest certified examples of the 1925-S Buffalo nickel, our upcoming iAuction event is your chance. If a Registry Set of Buffalo nickels is on your table, you will do well to cast your bid in our current iAuction, as there’s no telling when you’ll have another opportunity to add a comparable 1925-S Buffalo nickel to your collection!
