About This Set: Buffalo Nickels have always been my favorite coin to collect. From my childhood days I enjoyed pulling those well-worn nickels from pocket change. At thirteen years of age I was visiting my grandmother in Oklahoma City and saw a brilliant uncirculated 1938-D at Alexander's Coin Shop. That was the first of many BU Buffs I have aquired over these many years. I have certified a full collection that was housed in a Capital Plastic holder. While I liked the presentation of a full collection displayed this way, I look forward to building a PCGS registry set. I broke the set open and sent them to be graded on November 10, 2004. Most graded very well. Some I have already upgraded while others I have sold off to pay for these upgrades.
