Three Buffalos for grading...............

DoubleEagle59DoubleEagle59 Posts: 8,143 ✭✭✭✭✭

Nothing special here...a 1916, 1920 and 1925.

It's just that somedays with Buffalos I can't tell an AU from an MS.

    16 AU

    20 Choice Unc if that isn't damage on the buffalo's rear (looks like some kind of strike thru)

    25 can't tell ... AU58/63

    Not sure all are original.

    16 AU details cleaned

    20 - these can be lustrous but looks polished. AUU details

    25 AU 55

    From photos I question if any will straight grade.

    Images are not the best but my guess:

    1. Dipped AU details
    2. Cleaned MS details
    3. AU details, damaged or wheelmark maybe due to the scrape across the feather

    Really ? I like the 20 more than the 25.

    Yea, I thought the '20 was better than the '25 also.

    I wonder if they would have graded like that if the 1920 and 1925 would have been submitted together.
