I have kind of a large collection of coins that I’ve been at most all of my life going way back to when I was a Cub Scout to earn a badge. I’m 72 years old now but coins has never left my bones. I very much enjoy collecting buffalo nickels with as nice toning as I can locate and I am proud of my accomplishments with the series. I have sold many of my very beautiful and rare buffs to good friends right here on this forum along with many other coins and I hope they will enjoy them for years to come. I love this hobby and I also very much enjoy imaging these coins of mine to see them in their best light. I have a few thousand invested in my camera box, lenses and the most ridged copystand I could find on the market.
So, please join me in posting some of your beautiful coins from your personal collection.
I’ve got to say I have made MANY such good friends here on this forum since I’ve been around. I refer to you all as my coin brothers and sisters as I truly feel that way about you all.

The bitterness of "Poor Quality" is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Ok, Joe. Absolutely no reason to have 3 1913 T1 Buffs, so which one do I get? lol
    What beautiful coins, I would love to see them all, again. Take care, my friend. Have a wonderful, healthy 2024 along with your family.

    No question about it, you've got the best Buffalo's on the Board! And your photo quality is second to none. I love that you can trace your interest all the way back to Cub Scouts....I have memories myself of working on that Merit badge and being very into coins back then....Fond memories of days long ago. Thanks Buddy...Always enjoy your posts, and please sell me some of those Buffs! Not kidding.

    I would also submit the 1917 SLQ doesn't not fit with the rest of the coins pictured here. So, I'll take good care of it for you. Just ship it over here..... :D

    Just Lovely. The fact that you are such a cool guy to boot really makes me love everything you post! Thanks for sharing those wonderful coins with us.

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    Those are absolutely the most eye appealing toned buffaloes. Just started to put together a set of the “teens” myself.

    What a kaleidoscope of color!

    Such nice coins! Love the 1919 Buffalo!

    Those are some of the best pictures I have ever seen!

    If I've seen a more attractive group of Buffalo nickels, I don't remember when or where it was - gorgeous!

    Your Buffalos are fantastic, but I know you have some half dollars.

    Post some photos of your halves. :)

    P.S. Here is a photo of my only straight graded Buffalo (MS66).

    Just absolutely stunning toning.... love those nickels. those are a lot rarer to find with good toning since they don't have that magic silver component :)

    Your 15D and 16 Proof Buffaloes are my favorites. I would like to think ricko would approve my latest. NGC PF 66.

  • jesbrokenjesbroken Posts: 9,245 ✭✭✭✭✭

    These are all Joe's Photo's. Some survived the terrible fire which took most of Joe's family's possessions and are treasures.
    Fantastic photographer. Thanks Joe.

    I love the fact that you added a few native Indians to look over your extremely fantastic herd of buffalos

    Kennedys are my quest...

  • WalkerfanWalkerfan Posts: 8,952 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I sure hope that you were able to retain some of those beauties.

    You had a wonderful collection!!
