Great find!

In order for it to be a true Racket nickel, it must have been gold plated in 1883 when the 'No Cents' 1883 'V' Nickel was first released.

That is cool! I'm also wondering what makes it a true racketeer nickel?


Level 4

Sweet! I've never found a gold plated coin. :(

Nice job! (Are you sure you're not just "Joshing" us?! lol)

A gold plated one? Well done. Nice find!

Looking forward to seeing it. What makes a "true" racketeer nickel?
