    1937-D Three-Legged Nickel, MS63
    Lapped Reverse Die Variety

    1937-D 5C Three-Legged, FS-901, MS63 PCGS. The 1937-D Three-Legged Buffalo nickel is one of the most famous varieties of the 20th century. The die pair that was used to strike these coins became heavily worn and flowlined, urging the Mint to heavily lap the dies in order to return a smooth surface to the fields. The lapping, however, effaced the bison's right front leg. This Select example shows satiny mint luster and delicate golden toning. Eye appeal is pleasing. Most design elements show good definition.
