Type 1 and Type 2?
The 1913 buffalo nickel value varies greatly, as this was the year it was first produced. Additionally, there were also two types released in 1913. Why? Well, on the reverse side, the buffalo stood on a mound. The date was printed on that mound. The problem with this was that the date was raised so much that it wore away very easily. As a result of this, they released a Type 2 coin that placed the date underneath the mound to ensure less wear. You can see an example of the Type 2 coin above. It would be like this until 1938.
This coin was produced in three different locations. You can tell where it was made by looking at the coin’s mint marks.
- Philadelphia – There is no mint mark.
- Denver – “D” is the mint mark.
- San Francisco – “S” is the mint mark.
