Genuine 1913-1938 Buffalo Nickel made into a shank button, in Colorado. Because they're from actual old, circulated coins, each will differ a bit, as coins do. The wearing of the coin, variance from coin to coin, substantial thickness and heavy weight makes this a soulful, beautiful button. You can definitely tell the difference between these and replicas, which seem too perfect and consistent. 

Domed, 7/8" diameter or slightly less, shank back. Shank opening is 2.25mm.  USA-made.   (We also carry the same button made in reverse; buffalo inside, Indian image showing in front.  For that button, click here).  

 

This Buffalo nickel or Indian Head nickel is a copper-nickel five-cent piece that was struck by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938. It was designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser. 

This coin was made from Cupronickel, which per Wikipedia is also known as copper-nickel, and is an alloy of copper that contains nickel and strengthening elements, such as iron and manganese. Despite its high copper content, cupronickel is silver in colour.
