1913 Fake Liberty V Nickel

The above image is a fake 1913 Liberty V Nickel. It’s an altered 1910 Liberty V Nickel made to look like a 1913 Fake Liberty V Nickel. The creator actually pushed and carefully molded the 0 so it looks like a three even with the “bulb” serifs. I had to use a little magnification to see how this was accomplished.

1913 Fake Liberty V NickelHere’s the date under magnification and it’s obvious the metal has been pushed and molded, and glue was even used to fill the hole in this “carving”. It looks a bit crude under magnification but this is actually a decent job that took a bit of time to complete (. It could almost be called, to coin a new phrase, a “Hoboed 1913 V Nickel” since the zero has been carved into a 3.

However, an authentic 1913 Liberty Nickel would not be worn since they never entered circulation and there’s only five known to exist. All of them have a value of well over 3,000,000 dollars with two are proofs and the other three our normal or business strikes.

Here’s an image of a authentic 1913 Liberty V Nickel that sold for $3,172,500.00. Image courtesy of Heritage Coin Auctions
