My Buffalo Nickel Variety and Error Collection……..so far

VetterVetter Posts: 785 ✭✭✭✭✭

I know it’s only 10 coins and much smaller than many on here but I’m pretty proud of it.
2 doubled dies…1916 and 1935
2 off centers… 1920 and 1936
2 double strikes in collar… 1935 and a no date
2 missing legs… 1937 D 3 leg and 1936 D 3 1/2 leg
1 overdate… 1918/7 D
1 clipped planchet… 1916

I’m waiting on a 1915 D/D to come back and always looking for more.
I would be interested in see what you have as far as errors or varieties in the Buffalo Nickel series.

    Do you mind posting more close-up photos of both sides of that double struck AG03?

    Even though you do not have many, you have some very nice ones

    are you going to grab any 2 feathers?

    Love the double struck in AG-3. There are a LOT of Buffalo nickel varieties, including two feathers, RPM's, DDO's and DDR's, 3 1/2 leggers, 3 leggers, and a lot more I can't think of right now. Some sell for major money especially in AU to Mint State grades. Good luck with your search!

    This is a really cool way to approach a series. Nice work!

    A dateless double struck in the collar in AG - amazing! Hard to believe it lasted in circulation that long.

    I have the 2 main affordable varieties:

    • 1918/7-D, VG-8 raw. I found it in my grandfather's Whitman folder, in the 1918-D slot. At first I didn't believe it.
    • 1937-D 3-legged, F-12 raw. In a 2x2 from my grandfather's collection; he found it. There is a second one that I think is a fake (tooled?).

    I also have a 1918-S VF with a nice small die crack. A die state rather than a die variety or error.

    Nice ones!

    You must be kidding me. This is your start? Very few finish that well. Congratulations on one heckuva start. Thank you for sharing.

    You have one of the best collections of Buff varieties that I have seen.

    Aren't they both "male bison"?

    Doesn't mean they can't try.

    “Only” 10? You’ve done a fabulous collecting job so far. I suspect there will be more to follow. CONGRATS!!!!
