I'm questioning the authenticity of this Buffalo nickel. It doesn't look real to me. It looks like a poorly made fake.

WHAT? Good grief, it's real, there is NO reason to fake a 1938D. If it is the color you're concerned about, for some reason older nickels (Shield, Liberty and Buffalo) all suffer from discolorations, pinkish/orange, Black, dark gray, lite gray, just depends what the coin was exposed to in it's travels.

If any are faked it's the 1938P (ain't none)!

Definitely genuine.
I have seen many counterfeit Buffalo nickels and
none of the markers indicating it is counterfeit are there.
Change is inevitable except from a vending machine.

Why?
It's genuine and is worth around $5.00.
Still a nice find from a bankbox though.

That is a real coin. There were also RPMs and OM (Over-Mint marks D over 'S') that year.

The letters on the reverse looked off, but that's because I'm probably not used to Buffalo nickel designs. I felt stupid that it was actually real (which is why I didn't to comment at first to stoneman). Anyways, I have learned my lesson.
