Any Buffs with blast headlight or 5/5 luster?

With Lincolns and Jeffs I would call most ms67s a 4/5 on luster but some dates, especially the late 30s for example, can be occasionally found with absolute blast luster or a 5/5. I assume it must be the same with Buffs but are they harder to find? Or do I just not look at Buffs enough in person? Or does the nature of the design taking up most of the coin cause the flashiness to not manifest in a way as to be described as blast or headlights? Anyone have a 5/5 and photo that represents the difference with a typical 4/5? I don't think any of coinfact's photos quite describe the difference. I guess if they exist some of those ms68 38-d's would have to be among them.

  • That's pretty darn good!
  • Do proof buff’s count? Apparently, this one was struck from new dies, just polished, as the mint was getting ready to resume Proof production after a long hiatus. Any distractions you see are only on the photos and not on the coin in hand. PR67+ w/CAC:

    Pretty coin but I think the OP is referring to Mint State coins 
  • That’s why I asked if Proofs count. But other 1936 and later Buffalo proofs I see in high grades don’t have the headlight luster like this coin.

  • Proofs weren't meant to be spent ;) . Very nice coins though. If I had unlimited funds I would certainly collect them too.

    Looks like a brand new hubcap from the 1950s. Might light paper on fire if angled to the sun properly😉
  • I don't own this coin anymore, but it had impressive luster in hand.
