"Nickels of this design, often called " V nickels," were introduced in 1883. The first coins did not have the word CENTS on the back, and some were gold plated and fraudulently passed as $5 gold pieces. Later that year the U.S. Mint added the word CENTS in its present location. All Liberty Head Nickels were struck at the Philadelphia Mint except for part of the coinage of 1912, when some coins were struck in Denver and San Francisco. The mintmarks D and S appear on the reverse, under the bullet in front of the word CENTS." - Whitman Publishing
