1913 Buffalo Nickel Type I PCGS MS67+ (CAC)

The Buffalo nickel, along with the Walking Liberty half dollar, is likely the quintessential American design. The obverse portrait is a composite of several contemporary Native American chiefs while the reverse has the famous portrayal of Black Diamond. James Earle Fraser intentionally left textured surfaces on this coin as part of the artistic aesthetic of the day, which resulted in coins that appear to have a matte finish with underlying luster instead of blinding flash. The example offered here has wonderful, icy blue toning throughout with a hint of lemon on the rims. As expected from the assigned grade, hits are at a minimum, the strike is good and the eye appeal outstanding. The Type I Buffalo nickel is rather common, but someone who appreciates extreme beauty may be quite happy with this example in either a traditional type set or a first-year type set.
