Where to locate the mint mark on a v nickel 1911?

There is in fact no mint mark on the 1911 V-Nickel. The V nickel was struck at all 3 operating mints in the year 1912. If there in no mint mark it is the Philadelphia mint. The mint mark can be located between the word ''CENTS" and the dot on the obverse of the coin. While many people erroneously assume "V" stands for Victory, Victoria, or some other name, it's simply the Roman numeral for the coin's denomination .... 5 cents.
