These leather keyfobs from Pigeon Tree are very special. They’re made with original vintage Indian head and buffalo nickels. The nickels are dating back to the early 1900s. In the nickels are a hole which are carefully drilled out in the center to fasten them with a brass rivet.

The leather of the keychains is natural Herman Oak vegetable-tanned, so they will age nicely over time. The available leather colors are black, navy, burgundy, London tan, hazel, and green. A wide range, so everyone could pick his or her favorite color.

Buffalo Or Indian Nickels

Pigeon Tree is offering a variety of options, you can choose to have the buffalo or the Indian head facing up. 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.

These leather keychains are perfect to use on your favorite pair of jeans, so your keys are always safe and close to you. Just as all products of the brand these keychains are made by hand in Los Angeles.
