Additional Product Information
James Fraser designed the Buffalo Nickel in 1911 and the first coins were minted in 1913. During the Buffalo Nickels' 25 years of being minted, there were numerous modification as both the text, date and value on the coin, and the die to make the coin, were easily worn. Despite the technical concerns of the time, Fraser accomplished his goal to design "a coin that could not be mistaken for any other country's coin...the buffalo, as part of our western background, was 100% American." The coins used to make these cuff links are "Full Horn" grade which signifies excellent overall detail. They have been carefully tumbled and antiqued to bring out their rich detail.
