Premium Gem 1937-D Buffalo Nickel
Prized Three-Legged Variety, FS-901

1937-D 5C Three-Legged MS66 NGC. FS-901. This famous die polishing variety was discovered at an early date, probably by C.L. Franzen, who offered them for sale as early as 1937-38 in the Numismatic Scrapbook.. The dramatic appearance of the variety captured the imagination of the numismatic community, and the issue has always commanded a significant premium. Few Mint State coins were found in the 1940s and 1950s, but they have become more available in recent years. Premium Gem examples are still definitely rare. Currently, NGC has certified 19 coins in MS66, with three finer; while PCGS has graded only four Premium Gems, with none finer (6/10).
Light apricot and pink overtones grace the luminous surfaces of this Premium Gem specimen. The obverse striking details are sharp, but the reverse shows less definition (as always). The bison's head remains sharp, however, and the mintmark and E PLURIBUS UNUM are clear. Overall eye appeal is outstanding.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 22SX, PCGS# 3982)
