These are known as a Buffalo Nickel or Indian Head Nickels. In 1913 they issued two types of nickels on was on a Mound and the second series was on a plain. The mound being the first to wear down because it was the highest point on the reverse and the dated was on the obverse. This issue is the Type 1 as you can see on the reverse. The designer, James Earl Fraser, employed 7 Indian Chiefs from the West, and he took features from each of them to created the Indian Nickel to honor them. the Buffalo was supposedly to be the “Black Diamond” from the Wild Bill West Show, it was housed in the New York Central Park Zoo.
