U.S. Buffalo Nickel 1913-P Type I Raised Mound Fine
|Item Number: 19568|
|This tough-find and beloved issue is now over 100 years old!|
Everyone loves the Buffalo nickel, the last circulating U.S. coin with a Wild West look, that is now 100 years old! But comparatively few collectors are aware that there were actually two types of Buffalo nickels. And relatively few own the vastly scarcer first type we are offering. This great classic coin design was an immediate hit with the American public, but banks soon complained that the relief of the mound below the buffalo created stacking problems. The engraving was quickly revised. This early type is vastly scarcer than the second 1913-1938 type, which replaced the raised area with a flat line. We offer well-preserved Fine quality.
