The 1913-D Type 2 and 1913-S Type 2 are both low mintage key dates. The 1913-D, while not as rare as the 1913-S, is one of the most difficult Buffalo nickles to find in circulated grades. In mint state and also in Gem condition, this issue is about of equal rarity to most of the other early Denver and San Francisco issues.

Most examples of this issue are decently struck. The luster for mint state coins, as is the case with most of the early Buffalos, is a satin grey.
