Schlag and his nickel
By Tom LaMarre (Coins Magazine, July 2006)
Itís a good thing Theodore Roosevelt wasnít around when they came up with the idea of a Jefferson nickel. The Rough Rider hated Jefferson and never would have approved the coin. But another Roosevelt went along with it and apparently had some suggestions about the design.

Great article.

So where is a pic of the original design? Maybe the next 24K gold design should include lost designs such as this or some of the older pattern dollars.
