1937 D 3 Legged Buffalo Nickle Coin PCGS Graded XF45
The 1937-D three-legged Buffalo nickel is one of the most famous and most important coins of the 20th century. It is the classic Buffalo nickel. The coin is scare in circulated condition and rare in mint state condition. This variety resulted from over polishing of a worn reverse die. The front foreleg was almost completely removed and the back leg developed a "moth-eaten" appearance. A diagnostic feature of this variety is the "stream" that appears beneath the bison's belly. If this feature is not present, beware of an altered coin.
