Had fun completing this mini type set. Since the 1938-D is doing double duty by being part of my five cent type set, I have my eye on another - a nice reasonably priced MS (just an excuse to buy another coin). I have the 2005 SMS and the Jeffalos look much better than the buisness strike UNC, but I don't want to remove them from the packaging. If I recall correctly, there will be another State Quarter with a buffalo, but I can't remember when. As long as they don't show up on a 1 oz platinum bullion coin, I will be able to keep up :ninja:

Nice set!!! I am making a dog set right now, but you have me itching for that buffalo set. I have some bad news and some good news about my set. The bad news is that I only have the inexpensive peices. The good news is that I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

Very nice. A buffalo typeset is a very good idea. You could even add currency and make an outstanding exhibit/display.

Did North or South Dakota decide to use the Buff as well? I know they are not out yet but I remember some chatter on the subject.

No recuerdo.

 

I think it is North Dakota. The final choice was between Geese or a couple of BadBoyz

Potential ND SQ designs with the Buffalo winning.

 

South Dakota seems to be working on a Mount Rushmore theme.

SD SQ design article

 

Both are late 2006 releases, I believe.

Last I'd heard, ND's quarter will have a Bison. It'll be #4 in 2006 (probably released September 2006). There's a rumor that MT will have a T-Rex eating a bison on its quarter. :ninja:

 

No need to worry about a platinum Buffalo coin. We're expecting a 1 oz. gold Double Bison commem next year. Start saving your wheaties!

I am researching prices to do this set myself.  Should I go UNC all the way or throw in a few proof peices too?  I tend to prefer UNC over proof...what do you all think?

Price-wise, the proofs will not be much more, except for the original nickel. I am thinking about getting them all as proofs, but I fear that the original nickel is going to be a pricey item.

Well the gold bison is here now, so one more for the set.
