There is something about Buffalo nickels that attracts collectors. Some collectors remember when every once in a while one would show up in their change, or a time when they did grandpa a favor and the reward was a beautiful old nickel. Perhaps it reminds us of a time when the West was still new. Whatever the reasons, many people collect Buffalo nickels and some have managed to build truly phenomenal sets. When the major varieties are added to the set, three notable rarities must be included. Most elusive are the 1916 Doubled Die and the 1918/7-D overdate. The 1937-D three-legged variety is very well known, but not nearly as difficult to locate as the other two. There are also some less obvious stoppers within the series. The San Francisco coins of the late 1910s and 1920s are elusive and the 1924 and 1926 are all actually rarer than the famous three-legged '37-D. Though there are some tough coins, this series is now and forever a favorite of collectors.
