The 1937-D “3-Leg” Nickel is a famous variety created by a minting error which removed one of the Buffalo’s legs.

The Jefferson Nickel set is housed in a 5x7 frame with all (11) coins presenting in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. More on our website.
NCS stands for “Numismatic Conservation Services” a leading coin preservation service. Though the 1937-D “3-Leg” Buffalo nickel is noted as scratched and corroded, these conditions have marginal impact on the proffered specimen’s mid-grade details, as the scratches are confined to the hair and the area above the head of the Native American image on the obverse, and the corrosion is relatively light with deference to one of the Buffalo’s hind legs on the reverse.
The (11) coin set of silver “Wartime” Jefferson Nickels includes all P, D & S dates which were issued with 35% silver content during the WWII years of 1942-45. All of the offered coins present abundant luster and handsome original details, and should grade in MS63 to MS65 range.
