USA ~Five Cent Peace ~

Fantastic postcard showing the Native beauty of the American West...a bit different from the "touristy" postcards I normally collect but it was among my favorites for a loooong time and thanks to O'Neil I finally got it... Many thanks my friend!!

From backside postcard:
James Earle Fraser created the buffalo nickel. The final image was actually composed based on the likenesses of four of his favorite models; Iron Tail, Two Moons,Big Tree and Two Gun White Calf.

The American Bison (which people commonly refer to as a buffalo) is believed to have been Fraser’s take on “Black Diamond,” an American Bison which was featured at the New York Zoological Gardens.

"The Buffalo Nickel" was produced from 1913 to 1938.
