Coin Collecting Hobby: Part One

As mentioned in the last post, a Michigan-raised Iowa senior citizen was kind enough to show me his coin collection.  I am a poor photographer and my photos don’t do his collection justice but here are two photos that I took while visiting him and discussing the hobby of coin collecting:

Buffalo Nickels

These coins appear to be “a copper-nickel five cent piece that was struck by the United States Mint from 1913 to 1938.  It was designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser.” according to a Wikipedia entry.
