1913 Denver mint,bison,buffalo,cheif,indian head,nickle,country western wood box:

I have received a lot of opinions, emails, comments, idea sharing and clues to this item and its actually an even more rare item as one person shared it was a limited protection novelty creationitem from a special store called Service Merchandise from the 1970's that may have worked off an original similar crate. The interesting part is that this one is built very strong and solid it does not look cheap in any way especially on the sides but they observer felt if you loaded it up with the weight of coins the bottom would fall out? I will continue to add more info as it comes in, thanks to all of you for sharing your thoughts, glad you all are enjoying looking at it and I happen to really like it and its the first thing everyone comments about when they come over so if you are looking for a VIP gift for a country western fan or numismatistor anyone that is looking for a super cool vibe this is a very special item to enjoy :)
COMMERATIVE CRATE or a very UNIQUE BOX from the DENVER MINT the research shares many options but here is what it isBuffalo HEAD Nickel Wood Crate.Embossed “property of US Government Colorado, 1913, with 8 inch diameter renderings of the Buffalo on one side, and two gun white calf on the other and rendering print in circle is 7.5 inches. Integrated groove handles with the DENVER MINT and noted 1913 as picturedon both side.Not much is known about these Buffalo Nickel Crates, what is known is that there are only a few in existence. Some folks believe that they were produced by the Denver Mint in 1913 to transport the newly designed Nickels and that most of the crates made were burned as fire wood. Others believe that they were made much later in time as acommemorativecrate to honor the launch of the nickels which is special also and has a great look for the collector or western theme room.What is certain is there are only two of these known to exist and this is consider the third of these collectors box crates to be seen for sale. Especially with the lid wood top.
Item of interest for the numismatics collector and also by a Country and old west Western collectors and anyone looking for a highly unique item as a vintage statement. Perfect for the man cave or a display.

This crate is in wonderful condition, with nice patina and some dings and scratches on the bottom as if it was used and carted around mostly that you would expect to find with age and dragging something heavy inside the old wood box.
You will also see a special marking VD or VB shows inside one of the wood panels upon the crate with wear and fading of the print on one of the wood sections inside the crate as pictured in photograph #12.
