When James Fraser redesigned the nickel in 1913, he wanted to "produce a coin which was truly American and that could not be confused with the currency of any other country." He did just that – and now, you can add Fraser's desirable original nickel design to your collection, presented in a custom Littleton Showpak®.
On the original Type 1 coins, the buffalo stands on a raised mound displaying the words FIVE CENTS in relief. But wear caused the statement of value to disappear quickly. So, in a little more than 3 months, the nickel was redesigned to protect that inscription. This exclusive 5" x 3" Showpak features rich images to complement the original 1913 Type 1 nickel and tells the story behind this short-lived issue. Order yours now.
