My Grandson finds a nickle today in a restaurant. "Grandpa," he says, pointing to the portrait, "who is this?"

"You tell me," I reply.

"George Washington?" he says. Good guess for a 6 year old.


He thinks about it. He looks at me, "Donald Trump?"

I was laughing so hard it took a few minutes to compose myself……grin…"no buddy, it's Thomas Jefferson"……….

Is that the actor who played an Indian in the 1960s/1970s "Please Don't Pollute" TV commercials?

Second guess: Is it Donald Trump's father?

It's Hillary before her make-up and morning coffee. When she's waiting for Bill to come home, she adds war paint.

Ron, that was chief Iron Tail, a Lakota Sioux.

Whoa. Some biting commentary there, like the Indian nickle, be nice to see all the currency have a Nations character on the one side and a pres on the other or even a animal.

The US Mint believes it is a composite of three different Indian tribes(Lakota Sioux, Cheyenne, and one other un-named tribe).

'Iron Eyes' did really well portraying a Native American,
at least for an Italian-American actor .
