THE KAISER'S HEAD ON U.S. NICKELS! • June 1918 •
Collectors frequently have brought to their attention coins on which the device has been altered by someone skilled in the use of engravers' tools, giving the piece a humorous or satirical effect. The present type of nickel seems to offer a splendid field for these artists to display their ability, and some ludicrous specimens have been turned out. The latest of these alterations, according to the New York Times, is one on which the head of the Indian has been transformed into the head of the Kaiser by the addition of a spiked helmet. an upturned mustache and a close-fitting uniform, with other slight alterations. Some of the altered coins have been found in circulation in Hoboken, N.J., and the Department of Justice has been asked to apprehend the distributors.
