Poll Question
I am about to take pictures of my "work-in-process" collection of the US nickels produced 1883-1912, and was trying to decide on what file names I will use. I have been using and have seen several versions online & in print. I figured to poll the CCF Membership to find the general opinion.

What name do you use for US nickels produced 1883-1912?

I just call them V nickels. If I write about them I call them Liberty nickels or sometimes Liberty Head Nickels. In our Coin Facts link, they are listed as 1883-1913 Liberty (V) Nickel

They also have a different name for each company that produces albums/folders.

I like the term " Liberty V nickels". Pretty much covers all the bases except for the designers name.

When I talk to myself, I say Liberty nickel.

That's what I voted but, I also use V nickel in my head. I'm pretty sure I've never thought or said Liberty V nickel. I think I said Liberty Head Nickel for the first time today. I was talking to my mom about coins and said, "...Liberty Nickels, or Liberty Head Nickels..."

So, I guess I can't make up my mind!

For as long as I can remember to me (& my dad before me) they were simply " V nickels"

" V nickel" is much easier to say so I just call it that.

V nickels (without any mention of "Liberty"), and I suspect this is a sufficiently common option to be more likely than most of those featured specifically.

Over at Collectors Universe they are portrayed as "Barber Nickels", since they were designed by Charles Barber.

Sounds like a political debate. I'd go with the "both" option simply because it covers all bases. The Liberty Vs. V-Nickel depends on how you learned to define them and that won't change.

Barber nickels would confuse too many collectors.
