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.

Catalog Details

The 1937-S Buffalo nickel is considered the most common San Francisco issue in the series, and it doesn’t take much to see how this claim holds water. With an estimated 9,000 survivors in MS65 alone, this piece is miles ahead of other S-mint Buffalo nickels in terms of overall availability, even among other 1930s San Francisco Buffalo nickels. What’s more, strike, luster, and color are usually great for the 1937-S nickel. A tiny handful of examples have been certified by PCGS and NGC as MS68s, and those pieces command huge sums.
