Iconic Gold Buffalo Design by James Earle Fraser
Both faces of this coin were taken from James Earle Fraser's buffalo nickel. On the obverse is a right-side profile of an aging American Indian. His long hair extends over his shoulder, and he has feathers tied up at the back of his head.
On the reverse is an American bison, which is home to the plains. The massive animal's size is captured by Fraser's full use of the coin's diameter. Several inscriptions are included above and below it.
Perfect MS70 FDI with Buffalo Label
This coin was graded Mint State 70 (MS70) by the experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). MS70 coins are flawless as seen under 5x magnification.

Grading information has been provided on a label that features a closeup image of a buffalo, as well as several buffaloes roaming the plains.
