Bar Die Break

Bar die break
This is a sub-category of the die break affecting the letters of LIBERTY and the date of the Jefferson nickel. Primarily affecting the dates of 1960-D and 1961-D, this variety features a bar across the top of the letters of LIBERTY and the digits of the date. Many examples exist with just a single bar, but as many as seven bars on a single coin have been reported. Again, interest waned when the dies were modified and the variety ceased to be created.
