Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 30 Jan-2019 FROM THE MAYBACH COLLECTION. The 1925-S is one of the rarest dates in the Buffalo nickel series to locate in full GEM Mint State grades, it is extremely rare in any grades over MS65. It often comes lackluster and flatly struck. The Maybach Collector over the years worked very hard to locate the very finest MS65s graded by PCGS. We rank the presently offered example as a very high end MS65. Obviously the first thing that catches your eye is the splendiferous, original orange-gold, lime-green, and lilac-gray patina that caresses the surfaces on both sides, likely imparted by years of storage in an old collector envelope. Nicely struck for the date with just a touch of weakness seen in areas with effort. Even under intense magnification with a powerful loupe, we are hard pressed to locate any flaw of any kind of significance. Housed in an OGH, this visually striking GEM will delight any advanced Buffalo nickel collector. PCGS 31, NGC 24, CAC 8. The most recent PCGS/CAC MS65 sold in our January 2018 Regency Auction 25, realizing $20,563. The current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $21,000. Only THREE coins are graded higher, 2 in MS65+ and one in MS66. The last MS65+ to sell realized $35,250 in April 2017. This is a very RARE opportunity for the advanced collector to add a GEM to any high ranking Registry Set. We anticipate very strong bidding for this impressive beauty. Cert.
