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 the phrase "I was only joshing you" entered the language. Our set includes the second 1883-1912 type with the word CENTS added. Good quality. Dates of our choice.

Product was as advertised. No prob. there. They came in a small paper envelop which I dropped and almost threw away with the main envelop. I was thinking they might be shipped in a plastic pouch which would not cost that much. Just a suggestion on mailing procedures in the future. Tommy Bessa
I would purchase items again if different dates became available. Would like to be able to select dates needed.
