Owner Comments:

On June 3rd, 2006 I mailed this piece in an ANACS MS65 #686057 holder to NGC for "Early Bird" Crossover grading! June 12th I opened a registered package from NGC with NGC MS65 #2508704-001 inside! How about only nine days for Early Bird grading including mailing time!!! No upgrade though, well at least it crossed!
The piece is also a "Small D" 1934-D Buffalo Nickel! The U.S. Mint in 1933 changed to a smaller "D" mint mark. Because of this you can find both the "small" and the newer "large" "D" mint marks on all the U.S.Denver Mint coins of 1934. NGC only shows 5 small "D" 1934-D Buffalo Nickels in its population report. I don't know if this is commensurate with the actual number of small "D" mint marks or just because collectors aren't looking for the small mint mark on the 1934-D nickel. The overall color of the piece is amber.I also have the Large (D) as well NGC number 2539881-002
