Never a Nickel Short

This billfold always holds an extra five cents—and a priceless history. The slim, vegan leather wallet and money clip features an inset Buffalo Nickel. 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 lightweight wallet has two card slots on the back, an inner pocket, and a magnetic money clip on the front to keep your cash handy. A metal plate sewn into the wallet protects cards' magnetic strips. Each one comes gift-boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity. Made in India.

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 Billfold Money Clip:

My husband loves this wallet, had one similar for years. Its lightweight, not bulky, can fit in the front pocket for better security, very attractive and he receives many compliments. As expected with leather there is a break in period but totally worth it for him.
