.05 1884 Liberty Nickel G

Second year of issue

Minted from 1883-1913, the Liberty Head nickel originally appeared without the word "CENTS" in the design. Because of this oversight, some early 1883 nickels were gold plated and illegally passed for the $5 gold piece of the same size, until "CENTS" was added. This 1884 Liberty nickel was minted in Philadelphia and in Good condition. Designed by Charles Barber, the obverse features the head of Liberty wearing a coronet and surrounded by 13 stars. The obverse displays the Roman numeral for five surrounded by a wreath wheat, cotton, and corn.
