Only five coins are graded numerically finer at PCGS, 4 in 65+ and one in 66. This Gem represents a remarkable strike and condition rarity for a 1918-S Buffalo nickel. Both sides exhibit superior definition and the Satiny luster is full, smooth and brilliant providing outstanding eye appeal. Scarce even in the finer circulated grades, survivors of this 4,882,000-piece issue are rare in Mint State. Most Uncirculated examples are confined to lower grades through MS-64 due to below average surface preservation and deficiencies with the strike. This coin would make a significant addition to an advanced collection of this popular 20th century series. PCGS Price Guide...$16,000 and 3rd Party Numimedia Retail...$19,500.
