Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 30 Jan-2019 FROM THE MAYBACH COLLECTION. EX MCCARROLL COLLECTION Hailing from the all time #3 PCGS Registry Set is this magnificent GEM 1918-S. The McCarroll Collection is a Hall of Fame Set, winning awards each year from 2002-2004. The present coin is worthy of any WORLD CLASS Buffalo nickel collection. In Gem this is a VERY RARE date, and is excessively rare any finer with just four in MS65+ and a single MS66 finer. A brilliant mint luster swirls in the fields with a fierce vibrance. As you twirl the coin in a light subtle tinges of icy blue, delicate rose, and pale gold pastel iridescent hues come to life. For the date, this beautiful coin has an excellent strike. Even using a strong glass we are hard pressed to find any serious marks, indeed, other than some mint made clash marks we see nothing other than a few tiny flecks that would keep this GEM from at least a "+" if resubmitted (we make no guarantees). The eye appeal is very high end. PCGS 36, NGC 17, CAC 8. The most recent PCGS/CAC example to sell in auction brought $21,150 in December 2015; prior to that, one sold in the 2014 Central States auction for $22,325. Indeed, every CAC approved example has sold well in excess of the current PCGS Price Guide value of $15,000. The last MS65+ was the Angel Dee's coin we sold in our December 2016 Regency Auction for $29,375. This beautiful GEM, with its provenance back to the Hall of Fame # 3 All Time Set will entice strong bidding. Keep in mind this date, while RARE in GEM is EXCESSIVELY so any finer, with the single MS66 finest impounded in the Forsythe Collection. This is a very important opportunity for the advanced collector to acquire one of the FINEST 1918-S nickels. Good luck! Cert. Number 4386871 PCGS # 3940
