This genuine 1927 Buffalo nickel was struck by the Philadelphia Mint. Designed by James E. Fraser, it's a true American classic. The obverse bears a proud Native American profile. The reverse depicts a rugged American buffalo. In the year 1927, Girl Scouts founder Juliette Low died at the age of 67. That same year, Mae West was found guilty of indecency and forced to shut down her Broadway production. Recall these two very different - but equally influential - women with this coin today!
