Including all the FS varieties into the Short Set makes it a considerably greater challenge. Two of the more widely known Buffalo nickel varieties appear in this set: the famous 1937-D Three-Legged and the less famous, but tougher 1936-D 3 1/2-Legs.

Notes: This set is a work in progress. As new varieties are recognized, they may be added to the set. Likewise, delisted varieties will no longer be required.
