    This might be a dumb question, but does this look like a 1937 three legged buffalo to anyone? It very well could just be the usual wear, but I just want to be sure that it’s not something special.

    Did the San Francisco Mint make a 3-legger?

    Idk... I assume not if you’re asking the question as a trick question... if you really don’t know I couldn’t tell you... I haven’t been collecting long enough to know

    If you can see the fourth leg... it isn't a 3 leg.

    There is a long thread and discussion on CT about them. Out of 22 unslabbed on eBay in one month several years ago , not a single one I could see was real.

    Not to my knowledge. There are 3 ½ leg Buffalos (1913 Type I, 1926 D, 1927 D, 1936 D) and just a 3 leg Buffalo, 1937 D. There are many that someone has "doctored" a coin by removing part of the leg, but if you know what to look for, they shouldn't fool you.
