Yup, there are the normal 4 leg Buffalos. Some 3 & 3 1/2 legs. Even a 1930 5 leg Buffalo. But how many have seen a 6 leg Buffalo?

wow, pretty cool. It looks like it took an initial strike, then rotated and was struck again. Both sides are showing this effect. Did the collar rotate or did it loosen to eject it after the first strike then get shoved back in for a second round?

I'm curious - what does the TPG label say?

I'm trying to figure out just how the coin has this much wear. It's easy to see that it's double struck with rotation, but why didn't someone save it from circulation long before the coin was this worn? If this was someone's pocket piece, I guess that could explain the level of wear seen.

@Tonyqt. Is this your coin? Do you happen to know any background on where the coin came from? Do you have the certification number that's on the slab? Thanks for posting... I just want to know more!

It's a fantastic error coin and we'll never know the whole story, but these kinds of coins capture my imagination and won't let me go. I guess I really didn't need to sleep for a few days anyway.

That is a really cool double struck, rotated in collar Buffalo nickel, thanks so much for posting the pictures. It reminded me a bit of this one I saw on Heritage some time back but it had about a 90 deg rotation

https://coins.ha.com/itm/errors/191.../1297-7855.s

(I should note the Heritage example is label by Heritage and not NGC as 1913 Type 1 but it seems clearly Type 2 and not so sure about 1913 think more likely 1923 but not sure)

Would certainly enjoy hearing more about the example you posted, looks like about 40-45 deg rotation between strikes.

Very interesting example, thanks for sharing! Like Yokozuna, I'm also surprised a coin like this saw so much wear before it was eventually pulled from circulation.

Wow a double struck coin that circulated all the way to ag3, that must have been a pocket piece.
