Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 3150)

The 1913 Five cents is part of a series of Buffalo nickel coins struck from 1913. The specific variety is Buffalo, Matte Finish. Struck in Philadelphia and designated as a Proof (PR) strike, this coin is made of 75% copper; 25% nickel from a mintage of 1,520 struck.
The 1913 Type 1 Buffalo nickel proof is a popular acquisition among both type set builders and Buffalo nickel enthusiasts who wish to complete the proof side of the series. With relatively few proof issues made, it is quite economically feasible for the more advanced Buffalo nickel collectors to add one example of each proof to their collections. Dealers, meanwhile, encounter 1913 Type 1 Buffalo proofs on occasion. Of an original mintage of 1,520 pieces, fewer than 1,000 are known to remain in PR60 grade or higher. Most are found in the PR64 to PR66 range, with a few dozen known in PR67 and about a dozen in PR68.
Obverse: James Earle Fraser's famous and simple design depicts a Native American chief with the word LIBERTY from 1-2 o'clock. The date is placed on the lower left of the chieftain's bust.
Reverse: A full portrait of the bison, Black Diamond, with the words UNITED STATES oF AMERICA at the top periphery with the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM just underneath. The denomination FIVE CENTS is spelled out at the bottom. For the Type 1, the denomination is embossed on raised ground.

Greysheet & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
