1913-S 5C Type 2 MS67+ Certification #36759430, PCGS #3923

Expert Comments

David Hall

The 1913-S Type 2 Buffalo nickel is one of the key dates in the series. It is the third lowest mintage and as such is highly desirable in circulated grades. In fact, only the 1916 double die and 1918/7-D are worth more in circualted grades. In mint state, this issue is a little easier to come by than some of the later D and S-mint issues. Gem MS65 examples are available from time to time, but superb MS66 or better specimens are very rare.
