Authentic Buffalo Nickel Coin SCREW-BACK Concho, 7/8" USA #SW-31-SC
Genuine 1913-1938 Buffalo Nickel made into a Screw Back concho, in Colorado. Because they're from actual old, circulated coins, each will differ a bit, as coins do. The wearing of the coin, variance, substantial thickness and true coin weight makes this a soulful, beautiful concho. You can definitely tell the difference between these and replicas. Replicas are usually more perfect, lighter and thinner, and consistent.
Domed, 7/8" diameter or slightly less, Chicago Screw included. Made in USA. (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.
