The 1883 No “CENTS” Liberty Nickel is one of the most fabled United States coins of the late 19th century. It came along in February 1883 to replace the Shield Nickel, which debuted in 1866 as the first circulating United States five-cent denomination with a 75% copper, 25% nickel composition. The Liberty Head Nickel retained the metallic composition of its predecessor but was slightly larger in diameter – 21.2 millimeters versus 20.5 millimeters for the Shield Nickel.
This coin is from a larger collection stored in a smoke & pet free environment.
