PCGS Number: 93910 Coin Date: 1912 Denomination (Short): 5c Denomination (Long): Five cents Desg: PR Mint Mark: P Composition: 75% copper; 25% nickel Mintage: 2,145 Strike Type: Proof Coinage Type: Liberty head nickel Coinage Years: 1883-1913 Mint Location: Philadelphia Diameter: 21.2 Weight (Grams): 5 Designer: Charles E. Barber Edge: Plain Obverse Description: Lady Liberty with the word LIBERTY on her crown faces left with 13 stars around the periphery and the date positioned at the bottom center. Reverse Description: Large V (roman numeral 5) is centered in the design surrounded by an ornate wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA * CENTS * around the periphery. The motto E PLURIBUS UNUM appears near the top between the wreath and letters STATES OF AME. General Notes: The 1912 Proof V Nickel comes from a relatively lower mintage of just 2,145 coins struck. Even with such a low mintage this coin is quite affordable as most remain in existence. Pieces without a cameo are very common. The Cameo designation brings a premium in all grades, especially the finest of gems that are quite scarce. Deep Cameos are very rare.
