    1937-D Buffalo Nickel, MS65
    FS-901, Three-Legged

    1937-D 5C Three-Legged, FS-901, MS65 NGC. Aside from the basic date and mintmark set of Buffalo nickels including the 1913 Type One and Type Two issues, there are a few other varieties that interest collectors, as listed in the 2020 Guide Book. They include the 1914 over 3, the 1916 Doubled Die Obverse, the 1918-D 8 over 7, the 1935 Doubled Die Reverse, the 1936-D 3-1/2 Legs, the 1937-D Three-Legged that is offered here, and the 1938-D over S nickels. Some of those varieties have been added in recent years, but the 1916 Doubled Die, the 1918 Overdate, the 1937-D Three-Legged, and the 1938-D over S have been listed for decades, and those four varieties are highly sought today. This Gem is a remarkable example that features a bold strike and highly lustrous satin surfaces. All of the characteristics of genuine 1937-D Three-Legged nickels are prominently visible. Census: 58 in 65 (3 in 65+), 23 finer (4/20).
