The Story of 1883

Coins-United States | C.D. Harrell

I once watched an interview featuring the renowned Numismatist Q. David Bowers. A reporter asked Mr. Bowers what coins he enjoyed speaking about most. He simply replied, "story coins." He then went on to bring up an example of the 1883 liberty head nickel, featuring the no cents reverse. While not a particularly rare coin, it certainly is a good story coin.
