Why purchase this No Cents 1883 Liberty Head Nickel Proof?
Liberty Head Nickels replaced Shield Five Cents in 1883. The new series continued until 1913, playing an important role in daily commerce for three decades. 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
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this coin Proof 65 Cameo. The PF65 grade means that the coin was struck well, while the Cameo designation indicates that the fields are deeply mirrored.
