I found these two, and I got them for $50 combined. I believe I overpaid but I’m happy nonetheless.

The Buff graded MS-65

The Jefferson is ungraded, but I believe it’d grade at MS-63

    If you like them and want to keep them for your collection you did great!

    I wouldn't say that you overpaid for those, that was fair retail price. As you said, if you're happy, that's what's important.

    Check that Buffalo for a repunched mintmark. Could just be the photo, but it looks like something going on west of the D

    Nice looking Buff nickel.... Are the two marks in his hair/feathers on the slab?? Looks like they are. Cheers, RickO

    Nice coin.

    The 1938d is like perfection to me....

    Compare the strike on the Bison's coat to other coins.

    You will start to see differences in strike quality between 1920's and mint to mint.

    Find a well struck coin in a year/mint not known for good strikes and you have a nice cherry.
