There is remarkably little wear to this condition rarity Buffalo nickel, the all-important overdate readily evident through the bold definition that defines the 7 underdigit. Uncommonly smooth, satiny apricot-gray surfaces reveal not even a single distracting abrasion or other blemish to the unassisted eye. Easily among the most visually appealing and technically sound examples of the elusive 1918/7-D nickel that we have ever handled at the Choice AU grade level. If a choice quality 1918/7-D overdate is high on your want list, we suggest the present coin will bring you untold satisfaction.
Buffalo nickels have been very popular in recent times, although this is hardly new. Writing in the early 1940s, Abe Kosoff said that this series was one of the most popular with his customers. The 1918/7-D is extremely rare in higher grades, as the variety was not known to numismatists until long after pieces were struck and placed into circulation. Accordingly, examples in grades such as AU and Mint State are few and far between. (PCGS 3939)
