Mint Treasures offers some of the most collectible United States minted Nickels produced. The first mass production 5 Cent Nickel was minted in 1866 with both a proof and business strike minted. The Shield Nickel was minted from 1866 through 1883. During the last year of the Shield Nickel the mint started to produce the Liberty Head Nickel. This coin also shared the 1883 date as the inception of the series. The V-Nickel or Liberty Nickel was minted all the way to 1912 when the San Francisco and Denver mint stated to produce Nickels. Technically a few specimens of the 1913 Liberty Nickel were minted and few are know to exist today. In 1913 the United States Mint produced the famed Buffalo Nickel. This series produced arguably some of the greatest mint errors in the industry. The 1916 Double Die, 3 legged Buffalo, and 1918/7 overdate to name a few. This series concluded in 1938 when the Jefferson Nickel was introduced. While slight differences in the design changed, Jefferson graded the obverse of this coin from 1938 to present day examples.
