"Buffalos stampeded into Littleton after the company bought a hoard of 300,000 – the largest one-time purchase of Buffalo nickels in the firm's history. Sold by a western states dealer, some were still in Wells Fargo bank bags. The 3,300-pound delivery arrived at Littleton's headquarters in a Brink's armored car."

The Eisenhower dollar from the “Big Sky Hoard” shown in my book Rick’s Legacy – Pedigree & Hoard / Coins & Currency” was purchased from Littleton.  Check out their website at:
