Expert Comments

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.
