From your pictures I don’t see any reason why this 1938-D Buffalo couldn’t be. 893scratchchin-thumb.gif It does have the luster and tone I’ve seen on other MS66 38-D nickels, your coin has a pleasing look that I like.


The 38-D is a popular year and mint for a type example of the Buffalo nickel both for being the last year and it’s the cheapest of the MS66 Buffalos with over 16,000 graded MS66 by NGC alone. 893whatthe.gif


Before I added my 1937 proof Buffalo to my type set, I had a 1938-D NGC MS66 looked a lot like yours. thumbsup2.gif

Is that a spot on the slab over the cheek on the obverse? Easily MS65. Is the luster there for a 66?


Yeah, I think it’s on the slab, but with being a photo and not in my hand, I'm going give the coin any doubt. thumbsup2.gif


Here’s my old 1938-D, I forgot it was in a PCGS holder, not like that makes it any better than a NGC. insane.gif
