  • 1883 “No Cents” Liberty Head Nickel – featuring a large Roman numeral “V” but without the word <span style="font-variant: small-caps">cents</span>. This design was so similar to $5 gold coins, that con men gold plated the nickels and passed them off as $5 gold pieces. The word <span style="font-variant: small-caps">cents</span> was soon added to the reverse!1909 V.D.B. Lincoln Cent – the first Lincoln cent ever issued debuted 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 initials were removed a few months later.1913 Buffalo Nickel, Type 1 – <span style="font-variant: small-caps">five cents</span> inscribed on a mound. The words wore away quickly, until they were placed in a recessed area midway through 1913 (Type 2). U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Charles Barber’s jealousy over James Earle Fraser’s acclaimed design led to other modifications as well.
Each coin is encapsulated, and your set comes presented in a handsome display case – plus you’ll SAVE off individual prices. Don’t miss out – order now to own three of America’s most celebrated coins, all over a century old and still in near mint state condition.
