David Hall:

The 1929-D is common in lower circulated grades and semi-common in VF20 thru EF45. It is the rarest 1929 to 1938 Buffalo nickel in mint state and Gem condition, though it is not nearly as rare as the earlier Denver and San Francisco Mint issues. The strike is usually at least decent. Luster is typically somewhat frosty and iridescent.
