1937 D 3 Legged Buffalo Nickel,
NGC XF40. CAC
Caused by the results of an improper attempt to repair a damaged die, many escaped into circulation before inspectors at the Denver Mint caught the error. The coins’ outstanding feature is the buffalo’s missing front leg. Both stump and hoof remain, but the leg is entirely gone! That portion of the die was completely polished off so when the coins were struck, all of them were missing the right front leg. Since most of the coins reached circulation, only a few survive in new condition today.
