REPLY: It is an interesting story. The liberty head nickle was supposed to end production in 1912, to be replaced by the BUFFALO HEAD NICKLE. Someone at the Philadelphia mint managed to strike some 1913 liberty head nickles.
It`s a bit of a mystery. My guess is that it was done on purpose to create a numismatic rarity and enrich the mint worker . For more on this you can go to: http://coins.about.com/od/uscoins/fr/1913_nickels.htm . Someone wrote a book about it all. This is short article about it, NOT THE BOOK. ...TRAVELER

someone wrote a book about a nickel? I can't even imagine living with someone who would research and then write a book about a nickle.
