Unlike subsequent issues of this coin, this one only has a "V" to indicate its face value. That novelty makes this coin particularly appealing for collectors.

Vibrant Liberty Design by Charles Barber

Obverse: The obverse features Charles Barber's left-side portrait of Liberty. She dons a coronet that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY." Thirteen stars, which represent the original states, and the date, "1883," encircle the image.

Reverse: The Roman numeral "V" indicates the coin's face value at the center of the reverse. It is encircled by an open wreath. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" are inscribed along the rim.

Beautifully Maintained PF65 Cameo
