Buffalo Nickels ... I remember when they once

March 18, 2019 02:48AM avatar
must have roamed in big numbers and grazed the big grassy parks and other public access locations because I found them often in the latter '60s and on until the early '80s. It's almost like they were thinned from existence from all the hunting that was going on in that era. From about '83 to '90 I started finding 2X to 5X more 'V' Nickels and even Shield Nickels than Buffalo's. So for the past decade or so I almost get more excited when I recover a Buff than I do a 'V' or Shield.

Nabbing two in a day is impressive. Ought to put a feather in your cap for that achievement.

Glad you got out. Now that spring has arrived on this side of the state, I hope to start doing the same.
