    I found this today. It’s very worn down and the year is obliterated but it appears to me that this is a type 1-raised ground. I have a Denver in similar condition where the words “five cents” are very worn. From what I’ve read about the type 2:

    “The main purpose of the redesign was to place the inscription “FIVE CENTS” within a recessed area so it would not wear away quickly in circulation”.

    It’d be cool if it was a RG cause then I’d have a 1913 RG as well as a 1913-D RG.

    Any input as always is appreciated.

    I'm not sure what RG means, but this is a Type 1 Buffalo Nickel (aka 1913, Type 1)

    No need to make up unnecessary acronyms for "Raised Ground", when "Type 1" already covers it.

    Very cool CRH find, BTW.

    Happy to help and sorry, but we only call them Type 1 or Type 2. If you want to make it shorter, T1 or T2.

    Nicely done. You got one with a full date. I've only found a few.

    (Thank you for not assuming it's a key date or an error, too.) ;)
