These pieces are known as Buffalo, Bison or Indian Head nickels. In the first year of issue, 1913, there were two distinct varieties, the first, showing the bison on the mound, and the second with the base redesigned to a thinner, straight line. James E. Fraser designed this nickel employing three different Indians as models. His initial "F" is beneath the date. The bison was modeled after "Black Diamond" in the New York Central Park Zoo. Matte Proof coins were made for collectors from 1913 to 1916. Specimen strikings of 1917 are reported. The price of this coin also includes the cost of certifying and encapsulating the coin by ANACS, a $14.00 value. Limited Quantities.
