About 1919-D Buffalo Nickels
Another scarce early mintmarked Buffalo nickel, the 1919-D five-cent piece is quite challenging in all circulated grades and rare throughout the entire spectrum of uncirculated levels. A couple dozen or so examples have been certified by PCGS and NGC in MS66, and all that have hit the trading circuit in recent years have commanded five-figure prices. This is not surprising, especially given that, with a total mintage of 8,362,000 and fewer than 6,000 survivors across the board, the 1919-D is the rarest Denver-mint issue in Gem of all pre-1920 Buffaloes.

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.
