Specimen Buffalo Nickels of 1927


Multi-Media Summary

In January 1989 three 1927 five-cent pieces were purchased at a coin show. All three turned out to be specimen coins, perhaps proofs. All three were sold to coin dealers who still own the pieces. The significance of these coins is that no proofs of regular issues were struck officially between 1916 and 1936. After examining all three coins, the speaker also concurs that these pieces were specially struck proofs. Walter Breen examined one piece and called it a proof. The purpose of this talk is to examine all known physical and documentary evidence regarding these coins. Speaker(s): Mark Van Winkle.
