1913 Type 1 from PCGS

Split Tail Buffalo Nickels 1913 TO 1938

On the reverse of the Buffalo Nickel the tail must exhibit full spread of the end of the tail. They will exhibit 90% to 100% of the full length of the ends of the Buffalo’s tail hairs. Whether or not a coin exhibits this depends on the striking pressure the dies were set to when the coin was struck. This will be a First Strike.
