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.

The keys to the set are well known - the 1916 double die variety, the 1918/7-D, and the famous 1937-D three legged Buffalo among them. There are also some less obvious stoppers within the series. The San Francisco coins of 1923, 1920, and 1927 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.

Notes: This set is a work in progress. As new varieties are recognized, they may be added to the set. Likewise, delisted varieties will no longer be required.
