PCGS MS-63 1883 No Cents Liberty Head V Nickel Coin

The Liberty Head Nickel was the official five-cent circulation coin in the US from 1883 to 1912.

The coin was also known as the V Nickel due to its reverse design, which showcases the Roman number “V” instead of traditional Arabic numbers to describe the coin’s face value.

However, for the first strike of the coin in 1883, the reverse design did not contain the word “CENTS,” only the letter “V” indicating face value.

That caused ill-intentioned people to take advantage of the lack of the word “CENTS” to plate the new nickels with gold and pass them off as a new 5-dollar gold coin. Enough people were fooled that the US Mint quickly took action and inserted the “CENTS” reference below the Roman numeral “V” on the reverse in mid-1883.

The US Mint produced 5,474,300 units of the 1883 Liberty Head V Nickel No CENTS coin at the Philadelphia branch before the change in the design. These coins are made of a copper-nickel alloy (75% copper and 25% nickel). Charles Barber created the designs.
