About 1913 Ty. 1 Buffalo Nickels

With a mintage of 30,992,000 pieces, the 1913 Type 1 Buffalo nickel from the Philadelphia Mint is the most common of the Type 1 Buffalo nickels. The Type 1 design features the bison standing on a mound and was struck only during 1913. This Philadelphia issue is popular both as a first-year type coin and is also sought by collectors assembling the entire date-and-mintmark run of Buffalo nickels. There are many specimens available even in the higher Mint State grades. Specimens are plentiful through MS65 and MS66, with both PCGS and NGC have certified several hundred examples grading MS67 or higher.

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.
