If your collection is missing examples of America’s most-loved nickel designs, this first- and last-year set is for you! You expect to see one series per year for each denomination in circulation. But once in awhile, two completely different designs are issued in the same year! Now, you can own a historic 2-coin transition set featuring the last Buffalo nickel from the Denver Mint – and the first low-mintage Jefferson from the Philadelphia Mint. The Buffalo design was retired partway through 1938 after 25 years of service, and replaced that same year with a design honoring third president Thomas Jefferson.
Now over 80 years later, you can own this first- and last-year set – which will make a prized addition to your collection.
