Description

1866 No Rays Shield Nickel in Copper
Judd-508, PR64 Brown

1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-508, Pollock-592, High R.6, PR64 Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
The obverse features the standard design used to strike regular-issue Shield nickels in 1866. The reverse die is the No Rays design adopted for use in 1867. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The large 5 on the reverse is boldly doubled.

Commentary. This important transitional issue features the obverse of 1866 with the reverse of 1867, and examples are known in copper and nickel. About a dozen of the former and two dozen of the latter are believed to survive today. A single example may also exist in white metal or tin.

Physical Description. Turquoise and violet toning appear on the medium brown surfaces of this Choice proof, with splashes of mellow orange mint color on the reverse. Scattered carbon specks evidence the original surfaces of this piece.

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $17.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29L7, PCGS# 60704)
