DLRC #: 369475 // PCGS #: 3982

A stunning gem of this famous variety -- highly sought after by even non-Buffalo nickel collectors. Superb eye appeal with light pastel blue toning overall framed by a golden periphery. The reverse has rose toning in the center making this example easily one of the prettiest 3-leggers we've ever seen. The luster jumps off the surfaces.
