A Very Good 1916 Buffalo Nickel. They had a Buffalo on the reverse and an Indian Head on the front.
This caused the nickel to also be referred to as an Indian Head Nickel.
James Earle Fraser designed the nickel and his initial F is below the date.
The Buffalo was supposedly modeled after “Black Diamond” in the New York Central Park Zoo
