Introduced in 1913, the Buffalo Nickel was an early hit with collectors and a major circulation workhorse through 1938 when the series ended.
Although aficionados prefer the name Buffalo Nickel, the official name of the coin is the Five Cent Indian Head.
The popularity of the Buffalo nickel is rooted primarily in its design by James Earle Fraser with a right-facing profile of an Indian chief in a headdress on the obverse, and an American bison or buffalo on the reverse.
The Indian on the coin is a composite image of (at least) three different Native American chiefs, while the bison was based on Black Diamond, who was held in the Central Park Zoo at the time. These motifs also tap into the American romance with the “Wild West” ever since the period of expansion that began in 1803 with the Lewis and Clark expedition that reached the Pacific Northwest by 1805.
A How to Guide on measuring your Hat Size
Follow these super easy simple steps:
Step 1: Measure Your Head
You can either use a cloth tape measure or a long string and a retractable tape measure. Have someone hold the tape or string. It makes the process easier but you can do it on your own.
Place the tape or string around your head about 1/8” above the top of the ears and across the mid-forehead (usually about half an inch above the eyebrows) so that you completely circle your head.

Your jewelry should be the very last thing that you put on – after the hair spray and perfume. And your jewelry should be the first thing you take off.
Clean it with a jeweler’s polishing cloth or a soft cloth based upon the material. Store in a Ziploc protective bag. Although tempting, it is not recommended that you expose your jewelry to the shower, bathtub, swimming pool, lake or ocean.
Hats should never be set down on their brim. This will cause them to turn up. Instead, place the hat upside down on the crown. When storing your hat, you can place it in a hat holder, on a roll of paper towel or even a coffee can. Just remember to keep the brim elevate.
How To Clean Your Felt Hat: To prolong your hat’s life, regular brushing is important. To remove loose dirt, simply use a hat brush and swipe it away. Avoid using a brush made of nylon as it may be too abrasive and damage the hat. To remove dust from the hat, simply use a damp (not wet) cloth. To remove fuzz and hair, use a piece of sticky tape to gently wipe the hat.
How To Clean Sweat Stains And Dirt From Your Palm Hat: For easy stains, you can brush out the stain, or use corn starch or talc powder to dry it. For harder stains, clean with a damp cloth. For the hardest stains, a mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide can be carefully applied.
