    Who knew that Thomas Jefferson looked like a Native American and lived in a Buffalo?

    It's obvious the buffalo identifies as Jefferson. :rolleyes:

    Pity the poor collector whose stash was raided by a spouse, kid, or grandkid and spent. Or, worse yet, a collector who was carrying this around in his pocket and in a moment of spending frenzy, gave it to the cashier without realizing it.

    Heck, when I was a kid such nickels were found in pocket change every day. That must mean I am older than dirt?

    I remember the day that they announced the invention of dirt on the Internet, which was of course steam-powered back then.......

    Nice, and with very even wear and rims on both sides...likely re-released somehow more recently...hasn't been making the rounds since '36 by any stretch.

    Buffs were quite common when I was a kid, but that was in the early to mid 50s. Looking through sacks of nickels, I saved rolls of 38-Ds, as I recall. I also found a couple of AU 16-Ds and an XF-AU 1914-D with a gouge below the date. I tried to "fix" it, of course, with about the amount of success you can imagine. Ah, the good ole days. I was too busy saving 1950-Ds and 1939-Ds to spend extra time with Buffs.
