Two-Toned 1866 Rays Shield Nickel
PR66 Cameo, First-Year Type

1866 5C Rays PR66 Cameo NGC. The first year of the issue that would bring the term "nickel" to its modern meaning of "five cent piece," the 1866 Rays is a two-year type along with the 1867 Rays, the latter far rarer in proof format. This Premium Gem 1866 Rays boasts lovely surfaces with good contrast and tinges of alternating rose and olive. The few tiny flecks appearing under a loupe are minor. Census: 27 in 66 Cameo, 9 finer (4/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 276G, PCGS# 83817)
