Its unique design lends to its charm and popularity: the portrait of a Native American chief on the obverse and an American Buffalo or bison on the reverse. It is a small piece of history from a time that was rife with political, social, and economic growth. With hundreds of images, this book was written to aid the collector and to provide an invaluable tool to identify all the different varieties in their collection.
