History of Buffalo Nickels (1913 - 1938)

The Buffalo Nickel is distinctive in its own way, considered by collectors a truly unique American work of art. The coin portrays the American Indian on the obverse and the Buffalo or Bison on the reverse. Its designer, James E. Fraser, accurately portrayed the male Native American on the obverse and an American buffalo on the reverse by using three different Indians and a real bison from New York Central Park Zoo as models. His initial “F” is placed beneath the date. The 1st Year of Issue featured two distinct varieties: the 1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel had the bison on a mound, while the 1913 Type 2 Buffalo had a redesigned base with a thinner, straight line. Over 1.2 billion Buffalo nickels were minted from 1913 to 1938 at three mints: Philadelphia (no mintmark), San Francisco (S) and Denver (D). The mintmarks can be found on the reverse under the denomination. Matte Proof coins were made for collectors from 1913 to 1916. Proof Buffalo nickels began to be issued again in 1936. The 1937-D three-legged Buffalo nickel is another sought out 5 cent. The three-legged characteristic is the result of excessive regrinding of a die to remove clash marks.
