Current Finest Possible Set Rating : 68.094

View Set Composition  ( Shop )

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 challenge in the Basic set consists of most of the "S" mints struck between 1915 and 1928. In particular, the 1926 is a very tough coin in high grade. Strike is a problem on many of these, and getting a sharp and lustrous top grade example is very difficult.
