On the first page of this thread, qaman made the observation that some wooden nickels read "Untied" instead of "United", and this is another one of those.

It almost makes one wonder. Was it intentional? At times I think we are untied now, surely as history repeats they have had those feelings in the past.

Doing a very unscientific random sampling from the ones I have it looks as though many "untied" are on an obverse with a buffalo. Maybe traceable to the same manufacturer?



Of course there are exceptions.
