Why purchase this 1913-(P) Type I with Mound Buffalo Nickel?

The Buffalo Nickel series was minted annually by the U.S. Mint from 1913 until 1938, featuring designs by James Earle Fraser which were inspired by his exposure to frontier life as a child and actual experience with Native Americans. This 1913 example is not only from the inaugural year of release, it is also a single year issue design. Known as the Type 1 design, the reverse image of a buffalo is portrayed standing upon a dirt mound bearing the raised inscription "FIVE CENTS." With the denomination being the highest part of the design, the lettering was quick to wear down in circulation. As a result, the design was permanently modified mid-year: the mound was truncated with the text in exergue. This coin is one of 30,992,000 Type 1 Buffalo Nickels struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1913 prior to the design change.

Buffalo Nickel Design

The reverse features a standing buffalo, accompanied by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "FIVE CENTS." A Native American Chief is depicted on the obverse, with the inscriptions "1913" and "LIBERTY."

Extremely Fine Silver Nickel

This 1913-(P) Type 1 Buffalo Nickel is deemed to be in Extremely Fine (XF) condition. The ungraded coin possesses light circulation wear on the highest points, with limited areas of original Mint luster. All lettering and design elements of the coin are complete and clearly struck.

This single year of issue Type 1, 1913 Buffalo Nickel will make a fantastic addition to your collection!
