Description

First-Year Proof 1866 Shield Nickel
Lightly Toned Superb Gem

1866 5C Rays PR67 NGC. While numismatists debate the mintage of proof 1866 Shield nickels (the Guide Book suggests 600 coins, other authorities a lower figure), there can be no denying that the issue is a condition rarity at the Superb Gem level, with just a relative handful of coins sprinkled through the various contrast levels. This Superb Gem specimen gleams under aqua and canary toning and shows an appreciable cameo effect on the obverse, though the reverse likely would not qualify for a designation on resubmission. Magnificent detail is a match for the overall preservation.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 276G, PCGS# 3817)
