In 1913, the San Francisco Mint struck a mere 1.2 million Type 2 Buffalo nickels, creating an elusive “must-have” for anyone hoping to complete a date and mint mark collection! That San Francisco mintage represents less than 4% of all Type 2 Buffalo Nickels struck that year, making them one of the series’ key dates. And, in the attractive grade offered here, the 1913-S Type 2 is one of the most desirable coins in theseries – a centerpiece for any collection!
While 1913 Type 1 “S” Buffalo nickels (bison on mound) are relatively available, that’s just not the case for the Type 2 (bison on line). Like most first-year coins, many Type 1s were saved, but after the design was modified later in the year, most of the Type 2s went right into circulation and wore out through use. Today the 1913-S Type 2 is scarce in all grades – an elusive “key” piece for any Buffalo nickel collection – especially in About Uncirculated condition! Each one has been graded by our experts and certified by an independent grading company. It’s sure to be the highlight of your collection! Don’t wait to get yours – a limited number is available!
