I found this article about the new Buffalo nickel in the newspaper "The Wichita Daily Eagle (Wichita, Kansas) â€¢ Sun, Feb 2, 1913"The new nickel soon to take the place of the Goddess of Liberty nickel, which has been in use for many years. will have the American b!son on one side and on the other the American Indian. There will be no "V." Instead will be the bison, under which appears the words "five cents" and "e pluribus unum." In design it will be truly American. It was designed by James E. Fraser, of New York. The nickels will be put in circula-tion at once, and the mint at Phila-delphia yesterday began the stamping out of the coins at the rate of 120 a minute. I attached the image associated with it. Anyone wish the nickel looked like this? Never seen one struck this way.
In looking through the full run of the Numismatist, I found this add in the April 1945 edition.I am curious of which coin this is. Since the ad speaks of the Olsen sale, I would think it is not that example.It may be the "Walton" coin as my pedigree shows Dr. Bolt acquired the coin in 1945.
