Quote from: muntenman on April 28, 2007, 02:02:22 AMJames Earle Frasier is to blame:In the year of issue 1913 there were 2 varieties: 1 showing buffalo Black Diamond from New York Zoological Gardens on a mound. Five cents appears at surface.2 showing the same buffalo with the base redesigned to a thinner straight line. Five cents is recessed. So no mound what so ever, buffalo stands on a line.The second varieties came in circulation until 1938, the first variety was withdrawn and remelted....So this makes it certainly a coin.Did you know that James looked for the perfect indian and that he decided to build a face himself from 3 different Indian-models?
