Thanks for the history...

I do want to just say, that I hated the 2004 and 2005 nickels...

They are the ugliest things I'd ever seen in my life (The 05' bison nickel was okay, until I saw the obverse)

And I hate the newer nickels too

I liked the old nickel obverse and reverse, compared to what we have now (I hated the old jefferson nickel as well)


I love the buffalo nickel, and the V nickel :ninja:
