Priceless Style

Add an air of Americana to your wardrobe with these iconic Buffalo Nickel cufflinks. Designed by James E. Fraser and minted from 1913-38, the iconic coin honors Native Americans with its composite portrait based on Iron Tail, Two Moons, and Chief John Tree. The flipside gives the nickel its name with a profile of an American bison. The nickels are set on sterling silver swivel backs and each set comes gift-boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Made in New Mexico.

Disappointed when the MTA filled in the "Y" cutout of their classic subway tokens, Ward Wallau was inspired to find a fun way to incorporate the unaltered tokens into cufflinks. He wanted to prove to the MTA that the original tokens were worthy of celebrating and repurposing and, after 11 years of "no," Ward became the first licensee of the New York City MTA. Since that time, this "authenticity hound," has assembled and grew his team of artisans, production staff, and authenticators in Berkeley, California, where they re-imagine nostalgic artifacts as unique gifts that tell a story. Ward loves breathing new life into things that already exist, be it letterpress blocks, a wooden seat from Wrigley Field, or a bat broken at a Major League baseball game. "This business is ever-challenging, dynamic, and satisfying," he says. "It's not a good day if you don't learn something new!"

      Comments about UncommonGoods Buffalo Nickel Cufflinks:

      My husband was thrilled to receive these, they are great looking cufflinks. They are simply a buffalo nickel with a post soldered on. In fact, the first set broke but Uncommon Goods was very quick to replace. Very easy to exchange, no hassle at all. These do seem as if they are not too sturdy - but my husband likes that they are not too big, which would occur if thery where enclosed by extra stabilizing materials.
