You can now own four of the most fascinating and sought-after coins in U.S. history! Each coin in this collection is unique and short-lived, struck only briefly during the earliest years of issue, and discontinued with a design change...
- 1883 “No Cents” Liberty Head Nickel: featuring a large roman numeral “V” but without the word CENTS. The Liberty Head design was so similar to that found on $5 gold coins, that con men gold-plated the nickels and passed them off as $5 pieces. The word CENTS was soon added to the reverse!
- 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln Cent: the first Lincoln cent ever issued – introduced on the 100th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth. The size of designer Victor David Brenner’s initials on the reverse caused a great controversy, so the V.D.B. initials were removed just a few months into 1909.
- 1913 Buffalo Nickel, Type 1: with FIVE CENTS inscribed on a mound where the words wore away quickly, until they were placed in a recessed area midway through 1913 (Type 2). Jealousy from U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Charles Barber over James Earle Fraser’s acclaimed design led to other modifications as well.
- 1917 Standing Liberty Quarter, Type 1: when introduced in 1916 as WWI raged in Europe, these beautiful coins depicted Liberty with shield and olive branch – as well as an exposed breast! Partway through 1917, Liberty was “covered up” with chain mail to appease the critics.
