Probably one of the most beautiful of obsolete U.S. coins from the twentieth century! The Buffalo Nickel was minted from 1913 to 1938, at a time when nickels were a big part of everyday commerce. From that nickel beer, to that five cent one armed bandit!
Buffalo nickels signified the Westward Expansion, depicting on it's obverse, a Native American Indian- John Big Tree, a Seneca. (It was later determined that the obverse was a composite of several Native American sittings.) The controversial reverse was the buffalo- Black Diamond from the Central Park Zoo in New York City.
By the 1960's most Buffalo nickels still in circulation were dateless, due to the portion of the coin with the highest relief, being in the area of the date, making dated Buffalos scarce!
This roll of (40) Full Date Buffalo nickels from the 1930's, is in average circulated condition for only $37.98! Delivered to any U.S. address, including APO's, DPO's and FPO's, in a USPS Priority Flat Rate Small Box.
