I am looking for help grading this 1929 D Buffalo nickel.

I feel it is AU58 or maybe MS60/61.

I has luster just does not really pop.

I'll say AU-50, possibly 53.

Bit if a weak strike, causing some flatness primarily in the reverse high points (the usual spots). Even with that weakness I'm seeing enough rub to keep it out of MS ( noticeable on the high points of the head and left hind leg). Minor lamination issue on the obverse. I'm at AU58

Might want to take a closer look at that MM, tough to judge from these, but there might be a minor RPM hiding there

Nicks on both sides and a thin scratch on the buffalos body keep it at AU55.

Nice coin. Appears to fall in the lower AU range.

If that is a true RPM, how does the effect the value in respect to grade?

The more I look at it, the more it looks a lot like a RPM with it rotated to the right.

Difficult to say...
Maybe AU53-55?

Looking at this one again on the big screen I'll have to bump mine down to AU55.

Thought I possibly saw a split serif in the first pic, but just looks like a circulation hit in the close up. Placement is also off from any listed minor's.

Minor RPM's don't usually add much premium , if any sometimes, except to the niche collector. Also dependent on the RPM.

Overall nice above average 29-D
