Looks like the gold plate prevented it from corroding. I purchased one 40+ years ago from a coin dealer - only one I've ever seen.

Any Idea what they are worth?

Bertman, thanks for posting for the history lesson. After finding my only '83 v nickel (type1 ) just a few years ago (same property where I saved the NJ colonial copper from last week ) I had to read up on why that first year had no denomination too. I was really pumped, too. http://www.pcgscoinfacts.com/Hierarchy.aspx?c=82&title=Liberty+Nickel
