    1937-D Three-Legged Nickel, MS65
    FS-901, Famous 20th Century Variety

    1937-D 5C Three-Legged, FS-901, MS65 NGC. The 1937-D Three-Legged nickel serves not only as arguably the most famous variety in this series, but also as one of the most popular in 20th century American coin collecting. These coins were struck from badly eroded dies with the bison's front right leg unintentionally lapped away. Most examples saw circulation, often extensive, but this Gem was clearly pulled early on by an astute collector and set aside. Satiny nickel-gray surfaces exhibit hints of peach-gold color. Typically struck for the issue but impressively well-preserved without any obvious ticks or other impairments.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
