David Hall

The 1918 is about as rare as other early Philadelphia Mints in circulated grades. In Gem condition, the 1918 is the rarest P Mint Buffalo nickel. It is about equal in rarity to the 1913-D Type 2 and 1914-D. Strike for the 1918 is uaually very sharp and luster is usually not a problem. While rare in Gem condition, when you do find one it is usually very nice.
