Buffalo or Indian?

This item is part of the 2024 Indigo Pre-Order! Please refer to the information here for delivery estimates.

Some items that I am including in the indigo pre-order this year have never been made in indigo, so pictures may not be available. 

These keychains will be cut from my indigo vat-dyed leather, so you can expect there to be natural colored edges.

One of the coolest items to ever be conceived in the Pigeon Tree lab! I'm incredibly proud of these guys. Using original vintage indian head nickels, I carefully drill out a hole in the center and use the nickel as a burr for the solid brass hammered rivet.

These nickels are not to be confused with the ever so prevalent indian head snaps that you see everywhere, those are reproduced and made for the application. These are real nickels, dating back to the early 1900's!

I'm offering these up with a variety of options, you can choose to have the buffalo or the indian head facing up, as well as any of the following leather options:

The 'indian head' side is marked with a date, though on some nickels the date has been rubbed off, on many it is still visible.  If choosing the buffalo side, no date will be visible.
