Variety 1: 1883 'No Cents' Reverse

Issuing this coin without the 'CENTS' identification was a huge error on the part of the mint.  Unscrupulous people would have them gold-plated and pass them off as $5 coins!  At least the mint was quick to respond, and redesigned the coin mid-year to include 'CENTS'.

Variety 2: 1883-1912 Reverse with 'CENTS'

Mint marks: Philadelphia: none; Denver (D) or San Francisco (S) on reverse, to the left of 'CENTS'

1913 Pattern Coin

1913 was the year to introduce the Indian/Bufflao nickel, and no Liberty quarters were supposed to be made for circulation.  However, it appears there were at least a few 1913 Liberty nickels struck as pattern pieces or souvenirs for high-renaking officials, because five are known to exist.
