About Buffalo Nickel, Ty. 1 [Type] Buffalo Nickels

The first several million Buffalo nickels struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints feature the bison on the reverse of the coin standing upon a mound. While this version of the reverse design is considered quite beautiful by many numismatists, a major concern with this particular iteration of the design was the physically high, or proud, location of the inscription FIVE CENTS. The denominational inscription was recessed midway through 1913 to reduce the chance that it would be worn off the coin through daily use (as commonly happened to the date on the obverse of the Buffalo nickel). To accommodate this significant design change, the reverse was modified in such a way that the Buffalo stands above a horizontal line.

These changes created two major varieties in the Buffalo nickel series, with the mound reverse denoted as Type 1 and the line motif as Type 2. As a class, Type 1 Buffalo nickels are generally much scarcer than Type 2 issues, minted from mid 1913 through 1938. This is particularly true for the mintmarked Type 1 specimens.

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 values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles. 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.
