The first of the "V Nickels" had barely left the mint when the appalled officials found a fundamental flaw in their design: the word "cents" had been left off.

Con artists ended up plating the nickels with gold and passing them off to unsuspecting merchants as $5 gold pieces. Since the Mint so quickly moved to change this coin, it has become one of the more popular nickels to collect.

This genuine 1883 Liberty Head Nickel is plated in pure 24K gold and comes in display folio with the juicy story details.
