No nickel has Mount Vernon on it.Mount Vernon was George Washington's home, but Jeffersonis on the nickel and his home is called Monticello, just like the word underneath the building tells you! Before that (1913-1938), we had the Five Cent Indian Head nickel, popularly called the "Buffalo" nickel with an Indian head on the face (the obverse side) and a buffalo on the back (the reverse side).

It's a 1902 Liberty Head Nickel with a value of $3.00-$5.00 in average condition

There is no such thing as an Indian head nickel minted in 1895. The first Indian head nickel was minted in 1913; prior to that was the Barber nickel, with the head of Liberty.

It's not a Buffalo Head nickel, it's a Indian Head and/or a Buffalo nickel. Average value is $1.00-$3.00.

The first Indian Head/Buffalo Nickel was minted in Philadephia in the year 1913. The coin is actually called a buffalo nickel or an Indian head nickel, but not "buffalo head". After all, it shows the entire buffalo, not just its head :)

The 1902 Liberty Head Nickel consisted of 75% copper and 25% nickel.

The coin is called an Indian head nickel or a buffalo nickel, not a "buffalo head". It shows the entire buffalo, not just its head. Please see the question "What is the value of a 1920 US nickel?" for more information.

There is no such thing as a 1958 liberty head nickel

If you look at the coin's back side you'll see that the entire buffalo is shown, not just its head. However, on the front side only the Native chief's head is shown.That's why these coins are called Indian Head Nickelsor Buffalo Nickels, but never "buffalo head" nickels....Please see the question "What is the value of a 1918 US nickel?" for more information

This coin is commonly called either a buffalo nickel or an Indian head nickel but not a "buffalo head nickel" - after all, it shows the whole buffalo! Please see the question "What is the value of a 1927 US nickel?" for more information.

It's a coin, because it can flip on the head or the tail's side. The only 6-letter coin is a NICKEL.

No. The likeness of Thomas Jefferson first appeared on the nickel in 1938. From 1913 to 1938 was the Indian Head or Buffalo nickel which portayed the composite image of 3 different Indians on the Obverse side [heads] and the buffalo known as "Black Diamond" on the reverse side [tails]. From 1883 to 1912 was the Liberty nickel which portrayed Lady Liberty on the obverse and a "V" on the reverse. From 1866 to 1883 was the Shield nickel which had no person on it at all but instead had a shield on one side and a numeral "5" on the other. The shield nickel was the first US nickel.

The last year of minting for the 'Indian Head' nickel (some times called the 'Buffalo' nickel) was 1938.

It's 100% certain that you have an Indian head nickel, and not a Liberty head nickel. There are millions of the former, and only 5 of the latter. Please see the question "What is the value of a 1913 Indian head nickel?" for more information.

The coin you describe is referred to as an " Indian Head Nickel " or sometimes a " Buffalo Nickel ".
