Holy Coinage, Batman!

My friend Matt lives in Arizona and is paying much attention to the Arizona state quater to be released next year. See options here . My interest in coins has increased since I started working at the bank, I have to admit. And in this case I am with Matt's choice. The Navajo Wind Talkers deserve a quarter. So do the Tusgee Airmen.

Until yesterday...I never knew that the buffalo nickel has two options 1) realistic with the ability to urinate 2) sans the ability to urinate. Personally I don't see what all the huff was about, but keep your eyes out and put back the realistic ones..they will be worth more.

I wouldn't have thought that there was enough detail on a nickel to be able to tell whether the buffalo was anatomically correct. Now I'll look more carefully :)

Anatomically incorrect buffalo?

No wonder they almost went extinct.

Get back to work and quit leering at the wildlife.

Do you think the less endowed buffalo might be a female. You know gender equality?
