Buffalo Nickels

United States Indian Head Nickel
The Indian Head Nickel was introduced in 1913 and was also referred to as a Buffalo or Bison nickel. It was designed by James E. Fraser who employed three different Indian models. The buffalo on the reverse also was pretty famous. It was sculpted from the likeness of a buffalo that was housed in the New York Central Park Zoo named “Black Diamond”. Although some say that is just a legend, and the buffalo was actually modeled by a complete unknown. Tough breaking into the modelling business when you’re a buffalo. You can see the desiner Fraser’s initial below the date.
