Some error coins of the Indian Head/Buffalo Nickel type are not especially rare. Off-centered or broadstruck coins, for example, are available in circulated grades at a moderate cost. The errors shown here, however, include some of the most spectacular examples known.
Among the coins pictured are high grade examples of dates that are scarce as normal strikes. In the context of error coinage, they are extraordinarily rare. These coins were provided by several enthusiastic collectors of Buffalo Nickel errors. They include Bob Entlich, Ken Hill and Norm Talbert, and I’m quite indebted to them for their generosity.
