1937-D Buffalo Nickel. FS-901. 3-Legged. MS-61 (NGC). CAC. Golden luster on the obverse and reverse highlights a decent strike; the reverse shows some softness on the high points common to the Buffalo nickel series. On the reverse the diagnostic missing leg is notably gone, while the curious stream of die dots flows from between the beast's rear legs -- confirming this is from the original die pair that created this comical blunder.
