    On the reverse, above the word cents, you can see the metal forms what looks like an eye. Could this be a mint error?

    Hello! This is PMD (post mint damage). Just not sure about the who, what, where and when concerning this undated Bison. 5d4b3caf935075e3f7b835aa_thought-leadership-ohmconnect-t-o-u-rates-emoji.png

    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? lol.gif lol.gif lol.gif wink.png wink.png wink.png

    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 always wondered why not the mound. Thought more realistic.

    I don’t cook any mound buffalo nickels. Cuz I know that would be criminal. I’ve had a few with the mound showing only.

    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
