These radically different nickels share this overlapping date. In its final year, the beloved Buffalo nickel was only struck by the Denver Mint. After 25 years of service, it was retired and the Jefferson nickel slid into its place the same year and was struck by Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. The new nickel became America's third series to feature a portrait of a past president. You'll receive a 1938 Buffalo and Jefferson nickel from the Denver Mint in well-preserved Fine quality.
