Buffalo nickels were struck from 1913-1938, and were one of the few coins produced throughout the Great Depression. With little demand for coinage in the depression year of 1931, no quarters or half dollars were struck at all, and those coins minted in 1931 were produced in much smaller quantities than usual. A mere $60,000 worth of Buffalo nickels were struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1931, yielding the second lowest mintage in the series! This key-date coin features the most uniquely American design, preserving images of America's old western frontier. Get this prized 1931-S Buffalo nickel in an affordable condition!
