1938-D Buffalo Nickel NGC/PCGS MS65


The Buffalo Nickel, designed by James Earle Fraser, was minted from 1913 to 1938 and stands out as one of the most iconic Nickel designs to be created in U.S. history. This specific Buffalo Nickel example was struck at the Denver Mint in 1938 and has been graded in Mint State 65 condition. As the final year of issue for the Buffalo Nickel, examples of the 1938-D Buffalo Nickel are highly sought-after by numismatists across the country. Out of all 1938-D Buffalo Nickels struck, significantly less than 1% of the entire mintage has been graded in Mint State 65 condition. With so few examples graded in MS65 condition, this 1938-D Buffalo Nickel is known as a Condition Rarity.
