Owner's Comments

Expert Comments

David Hall: While not particularly rare in circulated grades, the 1934-D is the rarest Buffalo nickel of the 1930s in mint state and Gem condition. Strike can be a significant problem with this issue as many specimens have very weakly struck horn detail. Luster is usually quite nice and deeply frosty.
