Indian Head Nickel - Line Type

Minted at: Philadelphia (No Mint Mark)

In 1913 the U.S. Mint retired the Liberty Head nickel (or 'V' nickel) design and started making the Buffalo nickel. It is also commonly known as the Indian Head nickel. When the design first came out, the buffalo on the reverse was standing on a mound of dirt. The raised letters specifying the denomination of 'FIVE CENTS' wore away prematurely. Buffalo nickel values reflect the huge demand for this highly popular coin. Minted from 1913 through 1938, the Buffalo nickel has a particularly romantic lore attached to it, largely due to the fact that the coin has a rugged, all-American design, which was created by James Earle Fraser.
