Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 3143)

The 1936-S Five cents is part of a series of Buffalo nickel coins struck from 1913-1938. Struck in San Francisco and designated as a Business (MS) strike, this coin is made of 75% copper; 25% nickel from a mintage of 14,930,000 struck.
The 1936-S Buffalo nickel is a grossly common issue, though the scarcest of the regular strikes for the short period of 1936 through 1938. By the mid 1930s, collectors were looking for and saving 1936-S Buffalo nickels and other dates, too, for inclusion in the coin albums and coin boards of the era, which were just coming into vogue among numismatists. Certainly many rolls were saved as this issue is common even in uncirculated condition. Dozens have been slabbed by PCGS and NGC in the grade of MS67, and many more among each of the lower Mint States grades.
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 a flat surface.

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.
