    Nice type 1.

    Looks nice, some die erosion in places, and I find it tough to judge when in a 2X2. But from these photos I'd say MS64

    If I had to grade it from the photos I think I would go with 63. The strike is a bit soft for a T1 and there are some minor marks and spots. Nothing too bad but I think enough to keep it out of choice+ or gem, overall pretty nice.

    Lighting not good enough to grade it

    It appears to be a very nice Buff... Pictures too dark to guess at condition with any degree of accuracy. Cheers, RickO

    It appears to have serious die erosion issues, or it was dipped in acid for too long. I am not a fan.

    Do buffalo nickels exhibit die erosion very often?

    All the time. It appears as flow lines that radiate outwards to the rim.

    Often times Buff dies at the branch mints were used way past their useful stage, due to the fact that dies were readily not available.
