Authoritative Reference on Buffalo Nickelsby Kevin Flynn, Ron Pope
Buffalo nickels were struck from 1913 to 1938. This nickel series is considered to be one of the most collectible issues struck by the US Mint. Its unique design lends to its charm and popularity: the portrait of Chief Irontail of the Sioux tribe on the obverse and an American Buffalo or bison on the reverse. It is a small piece of history from a time that was rife with political, social, and economic growth.
Walk along the pages of history in the newly added Date-by-Date sections in the Business and Proof Strikes chapters. Includes new information on rarity and striking characteristics for each date and mintmark, and population reports. Also new to this book are a large number of new Buffalo nickel varieties, among the hundreds already discovered - Doubled Dies, Repunched Mintmarks, Overdates, and 3/2 legged specimen.
With hundreds of images, this book was written to aid the collector and to provide an invaluable tool to identify all the different varieties in their collection.
