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.
Extraordinary quality and easily the finest 1913 proof Buffalo we've handled. The strike is razor sharp on both sides and the surfaces exhibit incredibly vibrant satiny mint luster. Wonderfully original and mark-free with beautiful iridescent hues of ice-blue, rose and gold. NGC has graded just 4 coins Proof-68 and 2 have been given the 'Star' designation for outstanding eye appeal. None have graded finer at either service.
