The 1914 Proof Buffalo Nickel has the third lowest mintage in the series. Just under 1,300 examples were struck. Overall few Proof Buffalo Nickels were produced since they were only struck for six years, therefore, making them scarce overall. Examples up to about PR67 condition appear in the market regularly that most collectors can find one with minimal efforts. In PR68 condition it is a different story, as few examples exist. It make take many years before one appears in the market, so collectors cannot be to picky when it comes to finding a PR68 example.
