Designed by Charles E. Barber in 1883, the Liberty Nickel features a portrait of Liberty’s head on the obverse surrounded by thirteen stars. The reverse shows a roman numeral V within a wreath. In earlier years, some of these cents were gold-plated and sold off as $5.00 coins. The word "Cents" was then added to the reverse along with the roman numeral V to discourage criminal activities. The same design went unchanged until it was replaced by the Indian Head Nickel in 1913.
Collection sold with ten Liberty Head Nickels from 1903-1912. Mounted in its own display album to which you can view both sides of the coin.
