This coin consists of an exact size superbly crafted collectors Proof which pays tribute to one of the rarest United States coins ever minted. As a brilliant Uncirculated reduction tribute proof. These coins are known as Bufallo, Bison, and Indian Head nickels. The first year this coin was issued was 1923, with two varieties minted.
