Buffalo Nickels were made in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco from 1913 to 1938. The first 1913 Buffalo Nickels showed the Buffalo on a mound. Later that year the coin was redesigned to show the Bison on a straight lines base.
The bison was modeled after “Black Diamond” in the New York City Zoo. Buffalo nickels are extremely popular.
Roll of 40 "Rejecto".
Blazing mint luster and a great strike with a faint touch of gold.
Flashy mint luster and a great strike.
1,514 minted, but it is likely that some went unsold and were melted at the mint. The issue certainly appears less frequently than the mintage would suggest. This example is fully brilliant with the squared rims and razor sharp strike that is diagnostic of a proof. The surfaces are mark-free and the eye appeal is outstanding.
A beautiful Gem with crisp brilliant luster. Well struck with no significant marks.
CAC. Flashy mint luster with a stunning golden glow. The strike is razor sharp and the surfaces are virtually perfect!
Well struck with creamy mint luster and nice clean surfaces.
CAC. Beautiful radiant mint luster with a faint golden-green hue. The strike is very sharp and the eye appeal is outstanding.
Well struck with amazingly intense mint luster dancing off pristine surfaces. A wonderful example of this first year and 'type' Buffalo from the San Francisco Mint.
Well struck with flashy brilliant luster and no significant marks.
CAC. Well struck with super lustrous, untoned surfaces and minimal marks. Definitely a step above most MS-65 Buffalo's we see!
CAC. Extremely well struck with rich mint luster and nice clean surfaces.
A pleasing example of this 'key' date.
