This set is only the second issue of nickel coinage (with a five cent value) as the "nickel" wasn't introduced until 1866. The circulation strike Liberty nickels includes the famed 1883 "No Cents" issue, the rare 1885, and the first mintmarked nickels that were issued in 1912 in Denver and San Francisco. The proof Liberty nickels will always be popular, in part because of the time period, in part because of the noble Miss Liberty, but mainly because the coins in the series have a famous sibling, the 1913, of which there are only five known specimens. We will consider the set complete without 1913, but what a magnificent addition to any collection this classic rarity would be! This set is historic, fun and affordable for most collectors.
