I need help. I’m looking for FH’s birthday present (he’ll be turning the big 3-0! Eep!) but I obviously cannot ask him the value of this coin. He’s always loved coins, and enjoyed collecting them, but would never buy a really nice one for himself…so that’s where I come in.
I’m looking at a 1938-D Brilliant Uncirculated (and in mint condition) buffalo nickel (US). I have NO idea what the actual value is, but I’d like an estimate before I spend money on it.
I want to get him this coin, and also a card that says something to the effect of, “You are more valuable than ALL the 1938 D BU buffalo Nickels out there.” But..I don’t want to do that if the value is, say, $4.35. LOL.
Can anyone help? I’ve searched online but I can’t get a real estimate…I’m just finding lots of coins similar for sale, and most of them are valuable but there are some that are $10. I just don’t want to overpay for something that isn’t worth what I plan on spending, if that makes sense.
