Ten Years Of Liberty Nickels
An entire decade of Liberty Head nickels--one of America's most interesting vintage coins!

Designed in 1883 by Charles E. Barber, the coin had a huge flaw that everyone overlooked at first--the original design used only the Roman numeral "V", easily allowing counterfeiters to pass off gold-plated nickels as $5 gold pieces!

In late 1883, the mint quickly added the word "cent" to the original design. Coin's entire history is printed on the display.

Collection includes 10 nickels minted between 1902-1911, and a Certificate of Authenticity.
