Product Description

1883 No Cents Liberty Head or “V” Nickel


In 1883, mint officials changed the design on the Five Cents denomination. Differences from the reverse of the replaced Shield Nickel included a wreath instead of stars and a large Roman numeral "V" in lieu of the old Arabic numeral 5. The motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" took the place of the word "CENTS." Taking advantage of the omission of the word “CENTS”, enterprising individuals plated the new nickels with gold, then passed them off as new Five Dollar gold pieces. Enough people were fooled that mint officials recognized the problem and fixed it by restoring the word CENTS to its usual place at the bottom of the coin and moved the motto to above the wreath on the reverse. This change occurred in 1883, creating three major Nickel varieties for the year. The silvery surfaces of this Gem display abundant cartwheel mint luster. Several die cracks on the obverse add interest to the piece. Splendid eye appeal.
