Set of Five Different U.S. Liberty Head Nickels.
In 1883, the new nickel featured only a large “V” for the 5 cent denomination. Racketeers gold-plated some and passed them off as $5 gold pieces. The deaf mute Josh Tatum was the most notorious and got off by claiming that he couldn’t tell merchants it was merely a nickel and “I was only joshing you” entered the language. Our set includes the second 1883-1913 type with cents added in Good quality. Dates of our choice.
