This is an actual U.S. Buffalo Nickel that has been meticulously hand-cut with a jeweler's saw, and then set as a pin. Designed as a tie tack or lapel pin, but can be worn anywhere the post will fit.
The post is soldered, not glued, to the back of the coin for strength and durability. The deluxe clutch features a low-profile release that helps ensure that ties lie flat, while holding the pin more securely than other styles.
It features a bison, also known as the American Buffalo. It is the "tails" side of the iconic Indian Head Nickel. It was designed by James Earle Frasier and was minted from 1913 to 1938.
