Very nice box! That buffalo has a mintage of only 5.7 Million.
Yeah i checked that Canadian for the die clash and it wasn't. But on the 39s its hard for me to determine the two reverses unless they are in XF shape. Maybe its just me.
I can see it under the scope. But with my old eyes it aint easy without it. Glad you guys helped me with that. Ill start checking each one now under the scope. Dont want to miss a 38 reverse!
Usually dont keep any type of machine doubling or die deterioration but this 1962 is crazy cool!

@DatDareNickelGuy in light of all the Canadian nickels you've found do you plan on doing a Canadian nickel set?
With my AU/BU it is all about appearance. I hold onto anything 89 or earlier. Yes some examples may have a weak strike with no or weak steps but if some show decent mint luster I hold onto them. Any coin that is 30+ years old and shows slight wear I wil pull it out. I do see some of my examples are borderline AU but once again if I see good eye appeal I will take it out
Yep. I am keeping track of the years. Maybe when I get to 100 boxes done I will order another Jefferson book and my first Canadian Book. I have never put a Canadian set together so I might just do that! As far as putting another Jefferson set together I already have 5 complete sets. But I am putting all the AU/BU coins to the side and will start another AU/BU set shortly with all the pulls I have as of now. So look for those two in the near future
Does it Give a coin a Premium or Is it just something to Say Hey, I have a Very Good Example of a circulated but Great Shape Coin?
Just a good old regular box
1-1952S little bit of a die clash on the reverse above the Monticello on the right side
1-Error 2005D die chip filled in "D"
2-AU/BU 1957D and 1980D
Yes, there can be a premium depending on date for example 1982 and 1983 have a nice premium on BU examples on both P and D. But on the most part all my AU/BU so far are at face value but I have post some 70s with strong steps which might bring in a buck or two.
Now yes, the odds of pulling such a high grade out of circulation is very low but not impossible.
But also keep in mind just because I only pull out 89 or older in AU/BU shape doesnt mean you have to. Some people only pull out BU examples. Some people pull out 1999 or older AU/BU examples. Collect what makes you happy.
