**MY BUFFALO NICKEL DANSCO ALBUM COLLECTION 1913-1938**

Coins-United States | Kepi

Here is my "on-going" Buffalo Nickel collection in a Dansco Album. I've been working on this for about 2 years. I'm in no hurry to finish it, as then the "hunt" is over. I really like to look for Nickels with "character", toning etc. Does anyone else have albums in the works?

I have a couple of Dansco albums. Started with the ' v' nickels. That was a trip. The usual ones we all do. The complete Kennedy half's I love. You know keeping up with these sets can be hard. But I love it don't give up!! It's worth the time and effort. Good luck Mike.

Very nice. I have started a collection of these coins myself and have about 15 different dates and mints. I got 5 coins for $2 at a recent coin show and are worth about $12.

Quite an expensive set to complete.

Buffalo Nickels are a really tough set to collect. Nickels seem to wear quickly, especially buffalo nickel dates, and they have a wide variety of values, especially in the teen's coins. Also, there are a lot of them! This set is probably worth more than twice my collection! (That is, $3000)

As much as I look at other series, I always get drawn back to nickels. I need 6 buffaloes to complete my set, then the upgrades begin. I've also got Liberty nickels all but 1885, and am starting on shield nickels.

A dealer once told me back in the 1950's to make a collection worthwhile you should start with the best grade of the rarest coins and work forward, that way you are assured that you might eventually complete the set, Thanks Mr. C.

Great project. For a long time I had accumulations of coins, but over the past ten years or so I have made an effort to consolidate and to complete various collections. I started with the Franklin Half Dollars, then moved on to the Walking Liberty Half Dollars, Peace Dollars and, finally, Morgan Silver Dollars; the Morgans were a real challenge. I am currently focusing on Mercury Dimes (two left, 1916-D (of course) and the 1942-D 2/1, and on Liberty Nickels (1885 and 1886). Like you, I am not rushing; these will come. I am taking my time and reading up on these series. All these coin sets have been pursued with circulated coins. I also have come around from the Whitman albums to the Dansco albums. I especially like having the slipcases for the Dansco sets and their ability to nicely sit on the shelf. Good luck.

I just this past weekend, removed any Buffalo Nickels from my album that are less than AU "per my humble self grading" and put them in 2X2s. My goal is to have a complete set of AU Buffalo Nickels. It will be a task as I have only six left in the album.

My buffalo set is nothing compared to this. Are they all full dates? I have the 1913-D Type 2 and 1914-D, but they are acid treated.

You have an amazing collection. I am also working on buffalo nickels. I have about 20 teens dates, with 3 not being acid treated. They definitely can get VERY pricey, even common dates like 1914's.

They are all full dates. The " teen dates " can be a little pricey... I'm savings those for last... haha
