I recently got the itch to get one of these; a dream of youth that never went away.

Sorry... I should have said up front that the coin is straight graded.

Based on the horn F15, VF on a good day for you. I thought in your youth you dreamed of getting your birth year set. But I guess a 1913 V nickel is a little high.

Congrats Dennis. Buffalo Nickels are the only coin series I have ever tried to build the entire set and I gave up a long time ago. I grade these more strict than other people. I would grade it a G-4

I'm going F15 as well.

Glad you got one you've wanted Dennis.
Great example of a missing leg. Congrats!

Cool coin! I've always wanted one too.

I'd guess G10, but the braid and date make me think 8. Probably just the lighting - I'll stick with G10.
