QUERY: COUNTERFEIT LIBERTY HEAD NICKEL MOLD

Web site visitor (and new subscriber) Jeff Wilson writes:

Counterfeit V Nickel Mold I would like some information on the counterfeit V nickel. I can be reached at jessew61@yahoo.com.

I have a mold that was dug up by the Wabash river in the town of Russelville IL about 30 years ago. It is carved out of sand stone or maybe soap stone with the date of 1907 or 01. The reverse does have CENT engraved in it.

There was also a dollar mold. It was destroyed by some children who were playing with it.

Interesting find. Above are the images Jeff forwarded. Comments, anyone? Coincidentally I noticed this week that the new Professional Edition of A Guide Book of United States Coins includes a "Gallery of Counterfeit Coinage Dies in Appendix A. It includes a die for a Buffalo Nickel, but not a V nickel. -Editor
