1918-D, 8 over 7 Buffalo Nickel Overdate


1918-D, 8 over 7 Buffalo Nickel    ANACS  F12.  (1913-1938) A nice example of the tougher overdate in this series.

The buffalo nickel is technically known as “the five-cent Indian head” coin.

It’s also referred to as the bison nickel or Indian nickel due to the Indian on the front.

The buffalo on the reverse of the coin was supposedly modeled after a bison named Black Diamond that resided in the New York Central Park Zoo.

Did you know?
The buffalo head nickel was designed by James E. Fraser who used 3 different native Americans as models.
