1913-1938 BUFFALO MINT STATE NICKELS

FULL SPLIT TAIL = FTS or FSTL

On the reverse of the Buffalo Nickel the tail must exhibit full spread of the end of the tail tassels. They will exhibit 90% to 100% of the full length of the ends of the Buffalo’s tail hairs. Whether or not a coin exhibits this depends on the striking pressure the dies were set to when the coin was struck. AKA First Strikes.
