    I have a 1938-D buffalo nickel with an obvious D/S mint mark. I'm trying to attribute the exact variety. I'm pretty sure it's an FS-511. What do you think? The attached photo was taken with my little digital microscope. Photo on 11-27-20 at 12.30 PM.jpg

    Definitely looks like D/S, but the field is muddied.

    Looks like a clear FS-511 to me based on what I see at Variety Vista
