Rare 1866 Pattern Shield Nickel1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-497, Pollock-583, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. Similar to the as issued 1866 Shield nickel, but IN GOD WE TRUST has smaller letters, and the ball of the shield curiously divides the date into two sections, each with two digits. On the reverse, the prominent 5 has a repunched upright, and several stars exhibit recutting. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This slightly subdued cream-gray and straw-gold near-Gem has a full strike and is devoid of contact. The reverse field displays innumerable pinpoint strike-throughs, as made. Housed in a green label holder.
