1927 Buffalo Nickel – Nice Type Coin

Buffalo nickels, also widely called Indian Head nickels, were struck from 1913 through 1938 and designed by James Earle Fraser. The popular “Buffalo nickel” name is a misnomer in this case, as the large animal as seen on the reverse of this coin is an American bison. Meanwhile, the Native American on the obverse is a design based on a composite image of several individuals whom Fraser sketched in the process of designing this coin.

Several issues were released in 1913, the year that the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints produced two varieties of the Buffalo nickel. One variety shows the bison atop a mound, while the other shows the land beast standing on a plane. The words FIVE CENTS are inscribed on the mound on Variety 1 coins, while the denomination is expressed in a recessed area of the coin on Variety 2 pieces.
