Cuba (struck at the Philadelphia mint), 5 pesos, 1915, NGC MS 66+, finest known in NGC and PCGS censuses. KM-19; Fr-4. Even though NGC has rated this as MS instead of SP, this coin shows evidence of special striking (with polish lines in only one direction, sharper details and thicker rims) and the exceptionally high NGC grade does at least give an indicator of special handling (i.e., no bagmarks), so we feel it should also be considered a specimen along with the others in this denomination set. NGC #4499455-004.
