Buffalo, Minnesota: Giant Wooden Nickel

Giant wooden Buffalo Nickel.

[Amanda, 04/01/2020]

You'd think that a giant 2018 Buffalo Nickel would've been built in Buffalo to mark its 100th birthday, but in fact Buffalo was incorporated in 1856, and the nickel is out in the country, on the front lawn of a private apple farm.
