1938D Buffalo Nickel

9 posts in this topic

Here is a Buffalo that I picked up a few months ago that is not in a top tier slab.

Lets see how accurate you guys think the grade is.


For some reason when I try to image it from straight on it looks flat and lusterless, so I added a couple of angled images to show off the luster and nice color this coin has.

Very interesting (and by interesting, I mean strange) It's almost like looking at two completely different coins when you take the pics at an angle. So, since it looks like two coins, I'll give it a MS63 or MS64 (depending on which pics I'm going by)

Judging by the bottom photos I would say MS65.


I have a 38-D certified by NGC as MS67 and this coin is almost as nice.

The coin is in an ICG MS65 holder.


I also have an NGC MS65 1938D, so I do have something to compare it too.


The ICG coin has a better strike, more luster, no hits and nice color too boot. When compared to the NGC coin the ICG coin is much nicer. (thumbs u


Just goes to show that if you keep an eye out you can score a pretty nice coin in a non top TPG holder.
