The 1883 Proof Set is a large one, as three different Nickels were struck that year. The Shield Nickel was in its final year, and two varieties of the new "Liberty" or "V" nickel were made; both without and with the word "Cents" on the reverse. It was also the final year for the Trade Dollar as a regular mint issue. (While a few were made in 1884 and 1885, they are not listed in the Mint Director's report.)

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
