Issued from 1883-1913, the Liberty Head Nickel was an essential part of daily commerce in the United States for decades. Its designs, therefore, belong any collection of historic American coins. With a mintage of just 1,620 pieces, this 1908 proof is a fantastic option.

This 1908 Liberty Head Nickel comes from a fascinating part of American and world history. 1908 was the year the Ford Model T automobile was launched, at just $850, the year western bandits Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were killed in Bolivia, and the year the Summer Olympics were held in London instead of Rome due to an eruption of Mount Vesuvius two years earlier. In 1908, New York City passed the Sullivan Ordinance which made it illegal for women to smoke in public, although it was later vetoed by the major. Notable births in 1908 include actor Rex Harrison, actress Bette Davis, Oskar Schindler, whose life was depicted in the movie "Schindler's list," amongst other notable figures.

Powerful Liberty Design by Charles E. Barber

Reverse: Barber also designed the reverse. An open wreath encircles the Roman numeral "V," which combines with the inscription "CENTS" below to provide the coin's face value. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" spreads throughout the rest of the rim.
