In 1883, the new Liberty head nickel featured only a large V for the 5 cent denomination. Swindlers gold-plated some and passed them off as $5 gold pieces. The deaf mute Josh Tatum was the most notorious - his lawyer got him off by claiming that Tatum couldn't tell merchants it was merely a nickel he was handing them and the phrase, "I was only joshing you" entered the language. We are offering the second type with the word "cents" added below the V in Good quality. Dates of our choice.
