Liberty Nickels were made from 1883 to 1913. The first 1883 nickels were issued without the word CENTS on the coin. Con men gold plated the coins and passed them off as five dollar gold coins! Later in the year the word CENTS was added.
There are several scarce and rare date Liberty Nickels. The 1913 Liberty Nickel is one of the most famous of all U.S. rarities with only 5 coins known. All Liberty Nickels were made in Philadelphia until 1912 when coins were made at the Denver and San Francisco Mints.

Creamy mint luster and nice clean surfaces.
Very attractive with blast white luster and nice cameo contrast.
CAC approved. A premium blast white Gem with striking contrast between the deep mirror surfaces and the very heavily frosted devices. Fantastic eye appeal!
Well struck and lustrous.
CENTS added to the reverse to thwart con artists who were gold plating the no-cents version to pass off as $5 gold coins.
Fantastic blast white luster and only the most trivial of marks. Only 3 graded higher at PCGS - 2 @ 66+ and 1 @ 67.
CAC. A gorgeous 'With Cents' nickel with blazing untoned mint luster, a strong strike, and pristine surfaces. Only 2 have graded finer at PCGS (both MS-67) with one of those coins selling for $34,500. in 2006.
Deep brilliant mirror surfaces with a very faint golden haze. Nice.
CAC approved. A flashy Gem proof with just a slight golden hue. Very attractive.
CAC approved. A beautiful premium quality example of this better date. Virtually mark-free with rich luster and a very faint gold hue.
