The buffalo or Indian Head nickel is a great bargain buy right now. An inexpensive way to own a bit of Native American history.
The American Buffalo , or bison, was powerfully sculpted on this coin.

The overall design is beautiful, sensitive and also an important reminder of how we treated, and some still treat, peoples of races other than our / their own.

Let's eradicate racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination in our world.

This year for Christmas my wife bought me a beautiful suede leather wallet with buffalo nickel embedded in it, while on E-bay I noticed other similar nickels for sale and auction.I thought using one as a ball-marker on the golf course would at the very least be unique. Now there is no question who is closer to the pin, hopefully as I am inserting their money into my wallet and not the other way around!

I'm starting a collection and this was one of them that is needed, and it was a nice coin for me. They are a lot of coins out there you just need to be in the right place and in the right time, no matter what you would score one way or another....Happy bidding!
