Description:
1937-D Three-Legged Buffalo Nickel, MS65
Satiny Surfaces With Rich Rose Toning
1937-D 5C Three-Legged MS65 NGC. FS-901. The discovery of the Three-Legged Buffalos was published in Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine in 1937-38, shortly after the coins were minted. This is a serendipity for collectors, and a similar story to the later 1955 Doubled Die Obverse Lincoln cent. Both were found soon after their creation, and today examples are readily obtainable for a price in nearly any grade desired. Only in the highest Mint State grades do examples command extremely steep prices. Both are also available in more reasonably attainable Mint State grades such as MS61 through MS63. A couple of thousand Three-Leggeds have been certified in Mint State at NGC and PCGS combined, with a only a small handful in the MS66-67 range, the latter only at NGC (3/11). Despite the large supply, the popularity of the variety is such that buyers eagerly snap up nice examples whenever they appear.
This coin has wonderfully satiny surfaces with even rose toning over each side. The satiny mint luster is noteworthy, as many Three-Legged nickels have subdued mint luster. No abrasions are apparent to the unaided eye. An exceptional opportunity to acquire this popular issue in one of the finest grades obtainable. Census: 55 in 65, 18 finer (3/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22SX, PCGS# 3982)
