I was watching a video on YouTube where there were saying that there are only 5 liberty head nickels minted in 1913 but they also added that there may be a 6th one. Could there possibly be more than 6?

For what I know, those 5 have already been made without the consent of the mint. It's most likely that they've been made for fun by a mint employee at the end of a long workday, so to say. As such, I do believe that there is no control over how many have been minted and therefore, all is possible, in theory. He could have made a truckload of them and just taken home 5 specimens, after which the truck got lost, right? However, as it's been over 100 years and no new ones (except the ones made by our friends in China) have appeared, so it's highly unlikely that more authentic ones, which also will be recognized as such, will appear. I think actually chances are bigger that Easter and Ascension Day will happen on the same day one year, but you never know...

There are tens of thousands of them. Most of them are made in China.

Not likely. Possible. It's also possible you will find it in the change bin in your car.

There is no 6th one. I truly believe the whole story about a possible sixth one came about because the custom holder made for them for Col Green had more than five holes (It had eight holes, the other three contained two pattern buffalos. I believe one of them was a copper striking, and a regular issue buffalo.)

Another reason for a story of a possible sixth one would be for a con man to sell his fake one.

There could possibly be another one, but after 104 years of being the "front and center" news item in the numismatic world, subject to research by the most luminous scholars in the field, I would think we'd know by now.

Could be, after all we haven't found Bigfoot yet either
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all my coins for what I told her I paid for them.

Working on Whitman Large Cent date set album 1793-1857 (57 holes filled of 64 total) now come the "toughies" - yikes!
