I have never seen any nickles like the ones in the middle picture. Can you give us a little more information about them?

Also, the one's in the last picture. They sure are strange!! The second one in the last row. . . is that a guy sitting on a toilet??

I always like the buffalo and Indian since I came back to the U.S. from Canada at age 6. They were my special coins I kept in my pocket and looked at and rubbed - just like the habit of picking up a bird feather and keeping it for awhile.

interesting how the bottom 11/12 all keep "Liberty"… must be worth more than a nickel…
