This First Liberty Nickel Was "Centsless!"

When the U.S. Mint released the new Liberty Nickel in 1883, some folks were more impressed with the design than others. You see, the mint neglected to put the word "cents" anywhere on the coin. It just had a big Roman numeral V. Some ne'er-do-wells gold-plated the nickels, and then passed them off as $5 gold pieces! So, the mint immediately added "CENTS" to the coin design. The No Cents type has been sought after ever "cents!"
