Horsehide leather is tremendously dense and non-porous. Until the end of the 1930's this was the leather of choice for its extreme durability. The density and non-porous nature of horsehide makes it durable , but it is also the reason that horsehide does not dye evenly. If multiple items are made from horsehide, there is a very good possibility that each piece will have slight color variations. These color variances and the markings of the skins are considered part of the natural beauty of horsehide and reassure its authenticity.

Poly Twill Fabrics are often used for sturdy work clothing or durable upholstery because of its strength and durability. Twill also recover from wrinkles better than plain-weave fabrics do. When there are fewer interlacing, yarns can be packed closer together to produce high-count fabrics. In twill and higher counts, the fabric is more durable and air- and water-resistant.
The buffalo nickel (also known as the Indian head nickel) was produced from 1913 to 1938, inclusive. Mint marks for the coins are on the reverse, beneath the words "Five Cents" and above the rim. The Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco mints all participated in the mintage, though San Francisco generally had a much smaller annual production than either of the other two mints. The buffalo nickel, as designed by James Earle Fraser, featured a profile of a Native American on the obverse and an American Bison (buffalo) on the reverse.

The Mercury Silver Dime was first struck in 1916 and last struck in 1945. Each coin was struck in 900 Pure Silver. The coin was designed by famed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, the winner of a national competition sponsored by the Treasury Department. Liberty is depicted wearing a winged cap to symbolize freedom of thought. However, the coin quickly became known as the "Mercury" Dime, because it was thought to portray Mercury, Roman messenger of the gods, who wore wings on his sandals.
