Default Buffalo Nickels

I bought a set of 65 circulated Buffalo Nickels, all have dates which
all four digits are readable, no acid coins. No rare oddities, but a
rather nice set. At first I was dissapointed, but after looking
around I guess a nicer set would be very, very expensive, especially
for the more rare ones in XF or better. My coins range from mostly
VG8-10 to a handfull of F12-XF45. At least a portion of horn can be
seen on all. I guess I'm wondering if this is a desirable set for
Buffalo collectors, or are my expectations too high?

I can easily picture your set, because I have one that I would describe
exactly the same way. I'm proud of mine, and you should be proud of yours.
In my view, it's what coin collecting is all about.

unless you overpaid, it's a nice set.
if you can afford the keys in f or better, it will have some
good potential for the future.


Only if you can get 'em slabbed VF20 one day (not so difficult, I'm told).

I would say a desirable set. I don't get much enjoyment when I buy an
entire set, but with your buffalo nickel set I see lots of potential for the
hunt. Upgrading should be fun and, by doing one coin at a time, much easier
to work into the budget.

"market grading" barf, retch, puke.
but you are right. some of my bust halves have gone up a
full grade in the magic regenration process of slabbing.


That's nothing. Take a gander at this "F-12" large cent:

i might let that slide as a good. so they're are very rare,
it's still a low end grade.


Yes it is, and market grading of something that only exists in four examples
is moot. Market value is whatever a mix of testosterone and adrenaline make
it.

don't forget ignorance and greed.


I don't think ignorance applies to chasers of a 93 strawberry. Greed,
maybe, and possibly in more than one flavor.

Any set that is full--with the key dates-and match in appearance is
desirable to a Buffalo nickel freak.

well, i think anyone that believes that's a fine is
ignorant. i can't imagine what the ag's look like.
bat barf, prolly.


They're not pretty, but they are 93 strawberries.

I suspect the slabber put that grade on there to guard against the owner
trying to crack it out and get it into a competitor's holder, knowing full
well that they had exceeded everybody else's limit.

'hey, look what we just slabbed, nya, nya, nya'

ngc does not amuse me. a ploy to keep it out of a pcgs
slab and who cares about anacs?


I kind of like ANACS because nobody sends them coins a second time, hoping
to get an upgrade.
