**Collecting Buffalos again!**

Coins-United States | Kepi

I wanted to share this beautiful example of a Buffalo Nickel or as some people call them Indian Head Nickel. My husband surprised me with this today for no particular reason at all other than he thought it would boost back my interest into my Buffalo Nickel collection. I must admit that I have neglected them as I've been pursuing my other favorite coin, the Mercury Dime. When I saw my new Buffalo, I was so excited and remembered all over again why I loved this design so much! This one is a 1937-D. Graded by PCGS as a MS65...full of original luster and details. The reverse shows a beautiful strike of a buffalo with golden toning. There is a mintage of 17,826,000. The metal composition is .750 copper and .250 nickel. The diameter is 21.2 mm and the coin has a plain edge. I hope this has inspired you to think about a coin you've collected in the past that maybe you should take a second look at. Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcome.

**1943 Winged Liberty Toned**

Coins-United States | Kepi

I've been browsing some of my favorite auction sites and found this 1943 Mercury Dime, also called "Winged Liberty Head" with some really great toning! ( Which is one of my weaknesses...love those tones!) It's graded by PCGS and is an MS65. The designer is Adolph A. Weinman. It has a weight of 2.50 grams, a composition of .900 silver and .100 copper, a diameter of 17.9 mm, a reeded edge and mints out of Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. The wings on Liberty's cap are meant to symbolize "Liberty of Thought"....Something all Americans should embrace. I hope you enjoyed my blog! Any comments are always welcome.
