1913 Buffalo Nickel
67.  The buffalo on the nickel wasn't always "on the level"...  The first buffalo nickel (1913) showed the bison standing on a mound. The hill was soon changed to a more level plain to make more room for the words "five cents" and protect them from wear—the coin had trouble with wear throughout its 25-year life.
