David Hall:

The 1936-D is one of the most common Buffalo nickels in all grades. In mint stae and Gem condition it is not quite as scarce as the 1936-S but it is more scarce than than the 1936, 1937, 1937-D, 1937-S, and 1938-D. Strike is usually fairly sharp. Luster is typically of the subdued frosty type.
