In response to the inquiry about the wooden Buffalo nickel box, I have had one for several years and I feel it's some kind of modern reproduction. I also feel that the eBay seller of this item is a master at hype and fabrication-the only thing he stated that's true is the fact that one did sell for $2500 a few years ago. (I paid $150 for mine - they usually sell for around $200. I also have one with an 1887-CC Morgan Dollar on it that has to be a fabrication-no such coins exist!)
One reason I feel it's a modern production is the spelling of the word "PLURIBUS" on the box-"PURRIS." I seriously doubt that would be the case if it was a true US Mint product.
It makes for a very interesting display and conversation piece but an original coin box from the Mint? I don't think so.
Me neither. This one just didn't pass the sniff test. Thanks.
