    1936-D Buffalo Nickel, XF40
    3 1/2 Legs, FS-901

    1936-D 5C 3 1/2 Legs, FS-901, XF40 PCGS. CAC. The 1936-D 3 1/2 Legs Buffalo nickel is a member of both the PCGS Buffalo Nickels with Major Varieties and Buffalo Nickels Complete Variety sets, worth five points in the first set and nine points in the second. The variety is becoming increasingly popular, and this pleasing XF example should delight many series collectors. The latest Cherrypickers' Guide estimates a surviving population of less then 40 specimens in all grades. This lightly circulated example shows attractive silver-gray surfaces with no mentionable distractions and lots of eye appeal. From the #5 Current and All-Time Finest Buffalo Nickel PCGS Registry Set with Major Varieties. Population for the variety: 15 in 40, 14 finer. CAC: 5 in 40, 9 finer (5/19).
