Description

Important Gem Cameo Proof 1866 Shield Nickel

1866 5C Rays PR65 Cameo PCGS. First year of issue, and almost the only year Rays nickels were struck, as the 1867 version is extremely rare. An unknown number of proofs were struck in this year, but it was apparently more than the official mintage of 125 pieces. This is a lightly toned example that shows impressive depth of mirrors in the fields and considerable mint frost on the devices. A few tiny flyspecks of carbon prevent an even higher grade. Population: 19 in 65, 21 finer (10/03).(#83817) (Registry values: P3, N3469) (NGC ID# 276G, PCGS# 83817)
