1866 No Rays Nickel, Judd-507, Gem Cameo Proof1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-507, Pollock-591, R.5, PR65 Cameo PCGS. A prototype of the proof 1867 No Rays Shield nickel. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This popular transitional issue has the stars above the word CENTS pointing between the E and N and between the T and S. This is believed to be the first No Rays die, according to Saul Teichman. All other No Rays reverse dies have the stars above the word CENTS pointing to the E and T. This reverse was used on many 1866 nickel patterns including Judd-507-509. It was also used to strike some regular 1867 proofs in nickel. This deeply mirrored specimen is untoned and displays appealing contrast on both sides. A tiny spot left of 6 o'clock on the reverse border is really of trivial distraction.
