Description:
Top-Notch 1866 Shield Nickel With Rays, PR 66 PCGS
1866 Rays PR 66 PCGS. A brilliant gem showing the center dots on both sides (diagnostic of proofs). Faint toning is just beginning to form about the periphery, and the surfaces retain their original mint freshness. It was long estimated that only 125 proofs were struck, but now it appears that this number was a bit optimistic, as there have been over 300 submitted to the grading services in proof. Even accounting for multiple submissions of the same coins, there obviously were more than 125 produced. Still, an important two-year type coin that is seldom found even approaching this grade, in fact, this is one of only 6 so graded by PCGS (4/97) with none graded higher. As pristine as one could ever hope to find. (NGC ID# 276G, PCGS# 3817)
