Powerful Liberty Design by Charles E. Barber
Charles E. Barber designed both the obverse and the reverse. Obverse: Barber depicts Liberty in left-side profile on the obverse. She wears a tiara that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY," and her hair is held back in a bun. Encircling her portrait are thirteen stars, one for each of the original states, and the date, "1904."
Reverse: On the reverse, an open wreath encircles the Roman numeral "V." This "V" combines with the inscription "CENTS," which is at the bottom of this face, in providing the coin's face value. Just above the wreath is the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM," while the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," is inscribed along the rim.
Beautifully Preserved MS65
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in Mint State 65 condition. That grade means that the coin has an above average strike and exhibits no traces of wear.
