"The Buffalo Nickel" Tee

Regular price $ 14.99

The Peacemaker "Buffalo Nickel" t-shirt represents the Buffalo nickel or Indian Head nickel that was struck by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938. It was designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser.

When asked about how he came up with the design for the nickel this was his answer:

"Well, when I was asked to do a nickel, I felt I wanted to do something totally American—a coin that could not be mistaken for any other country's coin. It occurred to me that the buffalo, as part of our western background, was 100% American, and that our North American Indian fitted into the picture perfectly." -James Earle Fraser 

The Peacemaker Trading team can't go back to the 1800's or early 1900's....but we can celebrate one of the greatest periods in our country's history with shirts like the "Buffalo Nickel" t-shirt.
