These beautiful Buffalo Nickels are also known as "Indian Head Nickels" because of the striking portrait of the Native American warrior that appears on the obverse. I have always found it rather ironic that the U.S. government was honoring this noble people on the coinage during the very years that they swindled them out of their land and imprisoned them on reservations, but since this isn't an American History site, let's all find out how much our Buffalo Nickels are worth in my Buffalo Nickel Values table!
