1937-D Buffalo Nickel – PCGS F12 – 3 Legs
Always one of the favorite an most well known of the major US coin varieties, the famous “three legged buffalo” nickel. A worker at the Denver mint in 1937 got a little overly aggressive in the polishing of the reverse die before putting the now re-polished die back into production. The result is the coin you see today, where what was the highest part of the die was removed, which happened to be the bison’s front leg! So popular is this variety that it is often altered, taking a normal 1937-D nickel and removing the leg, but luckily there are numerous diagnostics that verify the authenticity of this coin. Certified by PCGS as a fine (F12).
