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.
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!
A beautiful Gem with crisp brilliant luster. Well struck with no significant marks.
Well struck with vibrant rich luster and beautiful surfaces that has a matte texture. Very attractive.
Fantastic nearly mark-free surfaces with beautiful crisp luster.
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.
CAC. Extremely well struck with rich mint luster and nice clean surfaces.
Strong detail with pleasing light nickel-gray surfaces.
CAC. Well struck with rich brilliant luster that has a semi proof-like glassy look. A gorgeous example of this scarce date and a coin that many would grade higher than the assigned grade.
Well detailed for the grade.
A pleasing example of this 'key' date.
