Lot Details
1937-D Three Legged 5C
FS-901. An impressively lustrous and delightfully satiny example of the finest order. Bold cartwheel activity supports an essentially fully brilliant appearance. Nicely struck for the date -- not fully so, as this issue seldom comes that way, but with enough details at the bison's shoulder and head to warrant attention here. The surfaces are immaculate in appearance, even under low magnification. Our hobbled bisonus americanus friend on the reverse performs his perfunctory ablutions in a stalwart manner, a hallmark of all genuine examples of this ever-popular variety. Untold scores of examples of this popular variety have passed across this writer's (JRJ) desk over the decades, but few have been anywhere as memorable as the present example. Its in-hand elegance and quality are essentially unbeatable, at least in the writer's opinion, but the opinion that truly counts is yours. If you mean to have one of the finest 1937-D Three-Legged Buffalo nickels in existence, you will do well to consider the present specimen. We wish you luck in your pursuit of this lot.
