New Nickels

NEW NICKELS…. So it looks like we’re getting yet another new nickel in 2005, this time with a new portrait of Jefferson and two new reverse designs, including a revival of the old buffalo nickel design that was replaced by the Jefferson nickel in 1938.

I like the new portrait, designed by Joe Fitzgerald and engraved by Don Everhart. I’m still making up my mind about the reverse designs.

What do the rest of you think?
