I just plain old like Buffalo Nickels.

    Buffalo nickels just melt my butter. In my older age, I can't afford to purchase hi-grade rare date buffalos. I love it when I see one that appeals to me for a cheap price. Just got this one for $3.00 shipped and the wifey didn't even get mad. LOL. I even have duplicates because I liked the way they looked for the price. I have no expectations of a complete set but I do own the ones I am pleased with. Dumb way to collect I guess.

    Collect what you like and put together your set anyway you like. I especially like 38-D Buffs. You can find awesome examples with interesting toning without breaking the bank.

    I am still missing a 38D from my circulated set. I'm surprised I haven't found one yet. I love the look of a good circulated Buff.

    If it pleases you it matters not what others think.

    I completely disagree with your statement. I believe that is the perfect way to collect.

    I fully agree, I find the buffalos very attractive also. Although I have a full set (took me years, started in the '60's), I still can't resist buying a nice one or 2 from the $1.00 box at flea sales.

    Yep. I do enjoy the buffalos. Hope to find a reasonable priced (by my standards, LOL) 1913 one of these days. Just so I can say I have one. That would be neat. Could happen. Probably won't change my life any one way or the other. LOL. Still having fun.

    Bonus when you’re other half doesn’t get mad! No wrong way to collect!

    The only "dumb" way to collect I think is when you are buying premium, rare pieces at cheap prices and not realizing you are buying counterfeit pieces.

    Yup, just like it was dumb for that rabbit to let himself get thrown in the briar patch. :rolleyes:

    You can put a complete set of Buffalo's together. Just do it one coin at a time. Nice looking '38-D.

    Yep. I think I will go on a search for a clean used Deluxe Dansco or Whitman album. I like that you can see both sides of the coin in those.

    Well, I finally broke down and ordered a Deluxe Whitman album for my buffalo's. I needed to get them better organized in one place anyway. I ordered the deluxe album because I want to be able to see both sides of the coin.
