American Bison leather is over 40% stronger than traditional cowhide and is unparalleled in its softness, strength and durability. The grain of the American bison leather is more pronounced and the fibers are thicker and more widely spaced. Leather has selected the American Bison, due to its superior inherent properties as well as the fact that the leather is processed and tanned in The United States.
Thickness or Weight – Leather is usually measured in terms of ounces. One ounce equals 1/64th of an inch thickness. Thus, a weight of 7 to 8 oz. means the leather is 7/64th to 8/64th of an inch thickness. In an effort to make leather a uniform thickness, wet hides are run through a splitting machine. However, each animal is different and there is always a slight thickness variation throughout the hide. This is why leathers are usually shown with a range of thickness, such as, 4 to 5 oz., 6 to 7 oz., etc.

The buffalo nickel (also known as the Indian head nickel) was produced from 1913 to 1938, inclusive. Mint marks for the coins are on the reverse, beneath the words “Five Cents” and above the rim. The Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco mints all participated in the mintage, though San Francisco generally had a much smaller annual production than either of the other two mints. The buffalo nickel, as designed by James Earle Fraser, featured a profile of a Native American on the obverse and an American Bison (buffalo) on the reverse.
The Mercury Silver Dime was first struck in 1916 and last struck in 1945. Each coin was struck in 900 Pure Silver. The coin was designed by famed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, the winner of a national competition sponsored by the Treasury Department. Liberty is depicted wearing a winged cap to symbolize freedom of thought. However, the coin quickly became known as the “Mercury” Dime, because it was thought to portray Mercury, Roman messenger of the gods, who wore wings on his sandals.
