Indian Head Nickel
Posted by Darrell McCracken on Nov 14th 2016
I purchased the Indian Head nickels to be placed on my old motorcycle jacket that had generic button type snaps. I was looking for something to make it stand out more that what it already did. The hardest part of all of this was deciding if I wanted the Indian Head or Buffalo Nickel. Since the jacket already had the female snaps installed, all I had to do was remove the male posts on the male snaps. This was easily accomplished with a pair of needle nose pliers. Once this was done, installing the Indian head nickel and male post was simple. You have to have a flat hard surface and tool for installing the nickel to the male snap. You can pick up these tools at any hobby store. Also You Tube has some good instructional videos on this procedure. I am very pleased with the final product. The jacket now looks totally custom and original. The service from Fox Creek was fast and easy!

These snaps are fantastic. I bought all the 1901 penny snaps they had, and purchased more 1901 pennies via a popular auction site. I sent the pennies to Fox Creek Leather and they put them on snaps and installed them for me at a very reasonable price. The staff at FCL are a pleasure to do business with, via email or over the phone. Great products, great value, great people!
