This is the widest separation in the whole Buffalo series!


I'm still amazed that the Philadelphia people let this get shipped to San Francisco.


This pic is from my collection. Given to me by Bill Fivaz. It's a VF.

The coin is a WRPM-001 according to "Treasure Hunting Buffalo Nickels" by Wexler, Pope and Flynn. Fivaz & Stanton FS# 5c-020. The secondary "S" is about 1/2 letter south of the primary "S". According to the book "Cherrypickers Guide" The RPM is rare in UNC. Only valued for $30 in VF, but the book is several years old.
