Last issued over 80 years ago, America’s Buffalo nickel is a collector favorite today! And now you can own the sought-after first & last coins of the series – the 1913 Type 1 and 1938-D Type 2 – two distinct varieties. Over one hundred years ago, this nickel designed by James Earle Fraser broke new ground for coinage artistry. It captured the essence of the American West with highly detailed images.
When introduced, the buffalo on the reverse stood on a raised mound inscribed five cents (Type 1), but the words wore away quickly. After 3 months, five cents was placed in a protective recessed area (Type 2) – a design used through the final year 1938 – when Buffalos were struck only at Denver.
Now get a “first & last year” set with the 1913 Type 1 and 1938-D nickel displaying just very slight wear in About Uncirculated. Or select the 1913 Type 1 paired with an exceptional Gem Uncirculated 1938-D. Always in demand – presented in a FREE case – order right away!
