Jaime Hernandez: The 1915 Proof Buffalo Nickel has the second lowest mintage in the series. Most examples that exist appear to be in PR65 to PR66 condition. Examples grading PR67 are considered scarce. Anything grading PR68 or higher is rare and probably a handful or two, at most, exist in this condition.
