    gray = found
    black = WANTED

    Here's the best I can piece together, and I'm pretty sure this is close to the actual total. I'm more than half way thru the series (35 out of 64). This is based on the last 63 Buffalos found since 3/2/97. I'll update it should I find my lists and of course with any new discoveries. That 1926-S was a shocker, found on 1/5/08.

    Interesting fact: Of the 26 coins that needed Nic-A-Date, 20 ended up having dates in the teens. 1926-D was the newest that needed the "treatment".

    Interesting fact #2: More than half of the dates in the Buffalo series have mintages BELOW 10 million.

    V nickels? A total of three: 1899, 1906, 1912

    Edit: Adjustment made, thx GMan.

    Edit #2: Kudos to Sleepy Holow for coming up with this grid layout that I "borrowed".

    Edit #3: Found an old post of mine from 11 years ago that confirms some missing dates, and that I passed the halfway mark in the series! The above chart now reflects the corrections.

    I am guessing #42 is supposed to be 1937-D as you have 1937 listed twice #42 and #63. I only noticed as I was comparing which ones I had found to the list you had found and I couldn't find the 1937-D so I looked closer.

    FWIW I am at 29 of 65 (the large and small mintmark variation on the 1934-D is the extra variation).

    All of my finds came with legible dates, or were nic-a-dated prior to me acquiring them, so I probably found between a handful and a dozen additional varieties that I can't count.

    What I am missing is 1913-D (Var 1), 1913-S (Var 1), 1913 (Var 2), 1913-D (Var 2), 1913-S (Var 2), 1914, 1914-D, 1914-S, 1915-D, 1915-S, 1916, 1916-D, 1917-D, 1917-S, 1918-D, 1918-S, 1919, 1919-D, 1919-S, 1920-S, 1921-S, 1923-S, 1924-D, 1924-S, 1925-D, 1926-D, 1927-D, 1927-S, 1928-S, 1930, 1930-S, 1931-S, 1934-D Large Mintmark, 1935-S, 1936-S, 1938-D.

    From your categories, I have found
    Category 1 - 1 nickel (the 1926-S)
    Category 2 - 5 nickels
    Category 3 - 10 nickels
    Category 4 - 13 nickels - missing only 1916, 1919, 1913 (Var 2)


    I have found 10 of the 34 different V-nickels varieties though. 1883 w/o cents, 1891, 1898, 1900, 1903, 1905, 1908, 1910, 1911, 1912-D

    Wow, look at that! "Immy's Buffalo List"...very impressive finds. Man, that 1926S is Sub-1M! If you found that, anything's possible. Collecting buffs is almost like collecting Mercs. Tough to find, especially nowadays. I have found two buffs on your list so far: #45 and of course #64. #45 required THE TREATMENT...

    Wartime Nickels
    1942-P (12/18/18)
    1942-S (11/13/10)
    1943-P (8/22/17)
    1943-D (9/15/09)
    1943-S (8/27/19)
    1944-P (9/1/13)
    1944-D (9/24/19)
    1944-S (8/18/11)
    1945-P (6/6/18)
    1945-D (8/12/11)
    1945-S (9/3/19)

    Now that Buffalos have been documented, let's focus on wartime nickels. The above list shows the last time I found each date/mm, with recent discoveries in bold. There's a big gap from roughly 2012-2017 when I was mostly on a CRH hiatus but I hope to remedy that in the coming months. Will the illustrious 43-D prove to be the toughest to find? Time will tell...

    Today was another attempt at the Cortez but it was sadly a skunk visit. All I could scrounge from the stubborn machines (slots & coin counters) were a couple of pennies and a carwash token, none of which was pic-worthy. In the roughly $75 searched I don't think I spotted even one pre-1960. Pretty bad. Will probably try again later in the month.

    Really enjoying this thread Immy. I hope the roadwork gets better soon so this thread can have weekly updates. Sort of like a "week in review".

    Thx!

    If I lived in my old neighborhood (aka ten minutes away) that would be a distinct possibility. It's now a half hour drive each way, and that's if the traffic is with me. Wish I could swing more visits. And what I thought was construction was actually prep for a huge Downtown festival. Everything seemed to be back to normal on Tues.

    Good news is I'm seriously thinking of a 2-3 day Cortez staycation early next month. Room rates are crazy cheap and I could bring up buckets of coins to the room to examine more closely. Is this taking CRHing to the absurd? The more I think about it, the more I'm loving the idea.

    Cheaper than a golf weekend. If you have the time and find it enjoyable. GO FOR IT!

    I remember rooms were very cheap and on weekends I would get a room comped plus meals all the time Prime rib room was awesome I would go there with my tie die led zepplin shirt and jeans lol I knew the cook and his wife, I would play all month then get in the tournaments at the end of the month, made a small fortune on all the vacationers. Then when they had events always play the machines near the Hotel check in and entrances they want people to see winners when they are first coming in lots of tricks, I learned from Pat Laughlin Toms brother. Anyway Good luck on your coin hunt you might be surprised if you talk to the right person, they might let you look through some of the coin bins at the end of the night when they collect. Tommy

    You can thank CardsNCoins for this impromptu Cortez excursion. Hadn't planned on going till later this month but then I thought "Why not?" and braved the cross-town traffic. Turned out to be a good idea with buffalo #6 for the year dropping out of a poker machine. It's the most common - 1936-P - but I ain't complainin'. The coin counter reject slot also gave up another carwash token, same type as the previous skunk visit. The pair make good companions and I'd like to think the antique auto pictured might have been on the road around the time this buffie was circulating.

    I will seriously be unable to go again since my next few Tuesdays are occupied. The Cortez staycation looks close to becoming a reality and will probably be the next time I hit the slots. Hopefully a couple of days of concentrated searching will produce some cool stuff.


    Fun Stats: This is my 7th 1936 found in the wild (most in the series) and first since 11/10/09.

    This Week in Casino Searching History: In 2006, 100 years after its release, I found my third ever V nickel (1906).

    The staycation is set! Went to the Cortez today to finalize my two-day visit next month, so why not search the slots a little? Good idea! Here's what I came up with:

    Wartime Nickels
    1942-P (12/18/18)
    1942-S (11/13/10)
    1943-P (10/26/19)
    1943-D (9/15/09)
    1943-S (8/27/19)
    1944-P (9/1/13)
    1944-D (9/24/19)
    1944-S (8/18/11)
    1945-P (6/6/18)
    1945-D (8/12/11)
    1945-S (9/3/19)


    A battered but still readable 1943-P wartime, fourth silver nickel this year. Next to that is a real curiosity, a 2005-P Bison that looks "antiqued", for lack of a better word. Is this what these will look like at the turn of the 22nd century? Also snagged a 2007 Canadian quarter from the coin counter reject chute.


    Got there early enough to try out $200 in halves. No silver, but the three oddities shown above were cool enough to keep. First is a holed 1998-P, and as holes go, this one was rather neatly done. Next is evidence that half hunters are sharpie-ing their territory in Vegas as "1365" adorns the reverse of this 1999-P. What could this represent? Surely this hunter isn't marking every 99-P he/she encounters? Up next was the first proof half I've found in awhile, a 1988-S. Had dozens of proof halves before liquidating them a few years back.

    So that was it. Not the most memorable outing but some fun additions to the collection. May go one more time before my Nov stay. We'll see...

    Fun Stats: First 43-P since 8/22/17. I completed my first roll of 43-P's on 2/9/03 and it took only six years (11/12/09) to finish roll #2.

    This Week in Casino Searching History: In 2004, I completed a roll of 1946-S nickels.

    Thanks for the update Immy, and nice pull on the 43P. As for the halves, the 1365 marking on the half dollar could be a reversed date (May 6, 2013) so he knows what day he searche it and put it back into circulation, or maybe the searcher's date of birth (Jan. 3, 1965). We'll probably never know.

    How increased will your searching be for the 2 day stay?

    Good enough guess to me.

    It depends on a few things, but mostly stamina. After a regular visit I start getting weary around the 6 hour mark. Having a place to crash will help to recharge. Will definitely try all denoms, especially quarters, which I sadly neglect. Gotta be a W somewhere in that place. I'm kinda curious about the dollar machines too and what those tokens look like.

    I also want to seek out flattened penny machines, of which there are quite a few in the area. With the cooler weather here, a nice walk thru the neighborhood will be a great way to break up the day.
    Oh! Did I mention with a minimum 2-day stay I get a free prime rib dinner?

    Wow, what a great Cortez hunt today. Yet another pre-staycation visit and I wasn't disappointed. Check out the spoils below!


    That's right, another two-buffalo day and both were 100+ years old - 1913-S (Ty 1) & 1914-P, though only the latter ended up needing a date with Nic-a-Date. The date on the '13 isn't all that clear in the pic, but it's a solid G/VG. Believe it or not I've found a 13-S mound type before (12/6/08) but I had to restore the date on that one. Dang happy with both bisons!

    But wait, there's more...

    Wartime Nickels [459]
    1942-P (11/4/19) [30]
    1942-S (11/13/10) [20]
    1943-P (10/26/19) [95]
    1943-D (9/15/09) [8]
    1943-S (8/27/19) [92]
    1944-P (9/1/13) [47]
    1944-D (9/24/19) [20]
    1944-S (8/18/11) [21]
    1945-P (6/6/18) [47]
    1945-D (8/12/11) [20]
    1945-S (9/3/19) [59]


    Score another wartime silver (1942-P) my fifth for 2019, and also fifth different date/mm in a row. Can I go 11 for 11 without a repeater? We'll see. Another choice grab was this sweet 1939-S, my 17th over all and first since 9/11/08. Hard to notice these years in the casino's dim lighting but it was a lucky catch. It's the kind of date that will be easier to find in the quiet of a hotel room.

    (Btw, I've added my wartime alltime totals to the grid. Which will be silver #500?)

    Fun Stats: Buffalos are outpacing wartime silver for the year, 8-5. I'm fine with that!

    This Week in Casino Searching History: In 2003 I found the most common Buffalo, a 1936.
