The 1908 Liberty Head nickel is a cherished remembrance of the early 20th century. At its time of issue, the 1908 nickel was an important part of the American economy. A fascinating array of coin-operated entertainment and vending machines required a nickel to use. In addition, many amusements cost 5¢, such a ride on the carousel or a ticket to the nickelodeon theater. The 1908 Liberty Head nickel is your dated memento from that historic year!
