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.

A well struck Gem example of this popular first year/first strike Buffalo.
Beautiful rich lustrous surfaces and a great strike.
CAC approved. Flashy mint luster and a sharp strike with a slight green-gold hue.
1,514 minted but it is likely that some went unsold and were melted at the mint. This 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 just a couple of very small carbon specks keep this beauty from an even higher grade!
Fantastic nearly mark-free surfaces with beautiful crisp luster.
Intense frosty mint luster blanketed in beautiful champagne-gold toning gives this Superb Gem fantastic eye appeal. Add in a razor sharp strike and no significant marks and this '13-D Buffalo is awfully close to perfection!
Well struck with rich mint luster. Just the barest touch of 'rub'. Looks mint state.
Fresh and frosty luster with just a subtle hint of color. Fantastic eye appeal. Only 1 coin grades higher at NGC and 1 higher at PCGS.
