For this year, a 3 piece minor set made in nickel, similar in idea to the sets last made in 1869 were created. They are the first to use Charles Barber's Liberty head design which was to grace our 5 cent piece from 1883 to 1913.
There is also a unique nickel 5 cent piece using this obverse with a similar reverse having the motto "In God We Trust" above it J1674A/P1876. It is in the Smithsonian.
