Hello! This is PMD (post mint damage). Just not sure about the who, what, where and when concerning this undated Bison.
Sure does. Interesting damage. That’s all it could be. Thanks for asking
If you want to get the date? You can soak it in vinegar for a few days maybe a week. Check it or flip it. You’ll get a date
Vinegar? Wow, that's a stinking way to treat a Buffalo. Do you add oil after and then use it to make a salad?
Cheech is offering the pickled nickel. Smells a bit like a pickle...but don't eat it!!
It's probably better than putting acid on it. That was approach for many years.
The design of the Buffalo Nickel left the date exposed. It wore of the coin after a decade or more in circulation. Oddly enough, the mint thought the "FIVE CENTS" on the reverse would go first, which what there is "mound" and "Line" or Type II Buffalo Nickel.
Type 1 Buffalo Nickel, part of 1913
Type 2 Buffalo Nickel, 1913 to 1838. Note the ground under the buffalo's feet.
Vinegar is an acid. Acetic Acid
I live for undated nickels. That’s my biggest coin collecting thrill!!!!! It’s like magic creation of new nickel life , it’s been a slow year
Oh I see now
I always wondered why not the mound. Thought more realistic.
Yes but it’s all for fun. I’ve dumped mine often. Looking for something like a 1916 dd just so I can enter @lordmarcovan new find contest. He makes fun for everyone
