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.

Catalog Details

With a mintage of nearly 63.5 million, the 1916 Buffalo nickels from the Philadelphia Mint boast the highest mintage for the series of any issue from the 1910s. These pieces are plentiful in all circulated grades and even in uncirculated. Moreover, it’s among the easiest to locate in mid-Gem range among any of the Buffalo nickels struck from the mid 1910s through early 1920s. However, the coin is scarce in MS66 and decidedly difficult in MS67.
