Buffalo Nickels, also known as Indian Head Nickels were
officially made from 1913 through 1938. It replaced
the Liberty Nickel. The Buffalo Nickel is a very
common and widely collected coin..
nickel gets its name from the image of an Indian on the front
and/or because of the image of a buffalo on the reverse. It
is actually a bison, but is commonly known as a buffalo.
Many of these nickels are very worn and carry little
premium, especially the ones with the date worn off.
Because the date is one of the high points on the coin, it
wore off quickly leaving millions of these nickels without a
date. Common terms used to describe Buffalo Nickels, are no
date, partial date and full date coins. Full date
coins are more sought after than partial and no date coins. Still, if you have some, they are certainly
worth more than face value. Contact us to help sell
