  1. interesting to see how the buffalo and the indian pictured on the coin board are both facing in the wrong direction!
  2. The big dot NOT but nevertheless still a dot!
  3. Technically it is a “doubled die” and not a “double die” but more people use the incorrect term “double die” than the correct terminology. I think this is because of the two D’s together at the end of the first and the beginning of the second word. The “elision” process causes both D’s to be dropped because it is just easier to say “double die”.
  4. Last year I cherrypicked a 1936 satin proof buffalo nickel purchased from an eBay dealer and I was able to get it into an ICG pr-62 holder. I like ICG their fees they are reasonable and their grading seems accurate of the most part.
  5. Tried to cross an anacs 1913 type one matte proof-66 buffalo nickel into a pcgs-66 holder but they would not do it. The coin was obviously a 66. To get it into a pcgs pr-66 holder I had to crack it out and send it in raw. Not that pleased with pcgs.
  6. There is a doubled die obverse / doubled die reverse combination listed in the “varietyvista” website where the combination is listed as “DDO-002 / DDR-002”. Go to this website and you will find all the information you need for this variety. Many pictures are included.
  7. In a specimen strike type set would be best place to put it. these coins are beautiful and belong in a set all by them selves.
  8. ngc only and thats the way it will be from now on till dooms day.
  9. I have a 1913 type one buffalo nickel the 3 and one half legger that pcgs said had a spot removed and it does not look like that to me. I think they might be referring to an area above the date. Here is the pic.
  10. Actually there is a solution. Around 1986 the company that produces Eagle Coin Holders which are either black or white 2 x 2 holders with acetate that holds the coin in place produced special albums for their coins which were vacuum formed pages that held twenty coins per page, 5 rows with 4 coins per row. These pages also worked great with the 2 x 2 clear Whitman snap locks which have been on the market since the early 1960ies I believe. They were originally offered in either 2 or 4 page formats. These vacuum formed pages while exceptional in quality and function turned out to be too expensive to produce, so the company later came out with a different solution which was just a clear acetate page which had a strap over the front of the coin to hold it in. The vacuum page albums held the coins in tightly with no strap, holders just snapped in place tightly. I was able to obtain two of them by approaching the manufacturer and asking for them. I am in the process of using this for a type set just as you are looking to do. Just google ‘eagle coin holders’ and you should be able to locate their website which has their address and phone number. Good luck!
  11. For now, so-called "1964 SMS" pieces, are more the product of a bologna factory than of truth. RWB sure doth like his bologna, he uses this word frequently in posts. But I agree with what he says here.
