Shield  1883 1883
PF63 raw
Choice $330 Choice Original Proof, Hamden Collection, Formerly NGC PF63. Purchased from Hamden Collection and a choice example for the grade. The Hamden collector is a purist and obviously purchases the coin and not the holder since all coins are cracked out and placed in Dansco album. This lovely proof shield nickel was previously certified as NGC PF63 with the label being sold with the coin. A nice proof strike with few blemishes for the assigned grade.

Buffalo  1937D 1937-D
3 Legs
EF45 PCGS
08821994
Original $650 3 Leg Buffalo, Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded, Popular Variety. The first 3 legged Buffalo to appear on the GFRC price lists since conducting business. This example is perfectly original with gray surfaces and limited wear. David Hall, on the CoinFacts website well captures the popularity and the basis for the Buffalo's missing front leg as follows; "The 1937-D three-legged Buffalo nickel is one of the most famous and most important coins of the 20th century. It is arguably the classic Buffalo nickel. This is an excessively polished die variety with the front leg of the Buffalo missing, though interestingly, the hoof shows. The coin is scare in circulated condition and rare, though not that rare, in mint state condition. Some Gem examples have survived. The popularity of this "super cool" variety drives its price as much as its rarity. This statement may seem contradictory, but most 3 leggers are fairly well struck...the leg is just missing!" Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. A cool coin to consider.
