1887 Liberty Nickel

The 1887 Liberty Nickel had a mintage of just 15,260,692. The composition of these coins is copper/nickel. The diameter is 21.2mm. The 1887 Liberty Nickel was minted in Philadelphia, and is otherwise known as a "V" Nickel.

Did you know: In 1887 Oregon became the first state to make Labor Day a holiday, and the first minor league baseball association organized in Pittsburgh. I would imagine a lot of the 1887 Liberty Nickels were spent in Oregon that year.
