Liberty V Nickel (1883 - 1912)
Collectors of this coin series look for a couple popular dates. The 1885 and 1886 Liberty V Nickels are sought out because the production for these dates was interrupted during 1885-1886, and there are limited quanities of nickels with these dates. The 1888-89 Liberty Nickels are very rare in brilliant proofs with mirror fields and frosty devices. Some later proofs are found more often cleaned than not. Many dates of proofs come stained or spotty - the result of the chemically active paper in which the Mint shipped proof coins. In 1912, for the first time in the history of this denomination, working dies for the nickels were sent to the Denver and San Francisco mints. That's why the 1912-S key date and the 1912-D Liberty V Nickels are popular among collectors.
