1921 Buffalo Nickel, Choice BU, PCGS/CAC MS-64

475.00

A surprisingly scarce date despite a mintage of over 10 Million, certainly underrated above a basic circulated coin. Some of this scarcity is due to common problems with strike, which left the date shallow and subject to wear quickly. This is an attractive original coin with interesting color. One area of weakness in "United" which is directly opposite the date, which is also a touch weak - I think this due to a less than ideal planchet rather than strike. This did not bother PCGS or CAC for that matter. 634 in the grade at PCGS/NGC versus only 20 (!) at CAC (Dec. 2018). Forgive the bluntness, but that speaks to the crap that seems to slip through at the services sometimes ...
