1913 to 1938 Buffalo Nickels

The Buffalo Nickel was produced from 1913 to 1938. This U.S. coin is also known as the Indian head nickel. Mint marks for the coins are on the reverse, beneath the words Five Cents. The Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco mints all produced the Buffalo Nickel. However, the San Francisco generally had a much smaller annual production.

Designed by James Earle Fraser, the model for the reverse was a buffalo named Black Diamond from New York City's Central Park Zoo. The obverse has a composite profile of a three real Native American chiefs named John Big Tree, Iron Tail and Two Moons.

Because of wear problems many early buffalo nickels dates have been completely worn off. Dateless buffalo nickels can have their dates restored by applying a ferric chloride solution to the date area. In 1937 excessive polishing of a Denver mint die removed most of the right foreleg, leading to the famous three legged variety.
