Liberty V Nickel (1883 - 1912)

In 1883, the Shield Nickel was replaced by the Liberty V Nickel or "Liberty Head" nickel designed by Charles E. Barber, Engraver of the Mint. This type of nickel first appeared without the word CENTS on the reverse. Some of these first coins were gold plated and passed for $5. To discourage fraudulent practices, the word CENTS was added on the reverse at the bottom, later that year. Inspired by a Greco-Roman marble head and the Morgan Dollar design, Barber featured a profile of Liberty on the obverse wearing a crown with the inscription LIBERTY. Miss Liberty was surrounded by 13 stars. The reverse displayed the value of the coin in Roman numerals surrounded by a wreath of wheat, corn and cotton. The No Cents Liberty V nickels had the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM visible at the bottom on reverse, while the Liberty V nickels with Cents had the motto above the wreath. Key dates of the Liberty V Nickel series include the 1885, 1886 and 1912-S.
