David Hall:

The 1936 is one of the most common Buffalo nickels in all grades. In mint state and Gem condition it is not as common as the 1937, 1937-D, 1937-S and 1938-D, but it is common nonetheless. It is slightly more available than the 1936-D and 1936-S. Strike is usually strong and luster is usually good.
