1937-D 5c 3 Legs NGC MS65 +

A Top 100 U.S. Coin and Classic 20th Century Rarity.

The 1937-D 3 Legged Nickel is a coin which is known even to people who have no familiarity with coin collecting.

Indeed, it’s one of those classic 20th century rarities that kids used to look for in their change back in the late 30’s and early 40’s and people still remember to this day.

When I have conversations with people about what I do for a living, it’s almost instantly one of the coins that rolls right off their tongue. “Have you encountered a 1937-D 3 Leg, or a 1909-S VDB Cent?” You know, the typical famous rarities everyone wants and has heard of in the news.

It is by far and away one of the most important 20th century rarities made. A result of an over-polishing of the die in the area of the Buffalo’s 4th leg which made it disappear basically altogether, creating an instant and classic famous rarity from the start.

Collectors covet the coin in all grades, but in the higher grades it is an integral addition to those collections wherein only the finest will do.

The present example is graded NGC MS65 +. That little + is key, because the last MS66 we can remember selling was for $55,000 back in 2016, and it hasn’t been uncommon to see them go into the 80k territory when offered either.

An extraordinary achievement in one of the finest grades you can get it in for the money.
