Description

1870 Shield Nickel, PR66 Cameo
Seldom Seen With Contrast

1870 5C PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. From an estimated mintage of 1,000 pieces, the proof 1870 Shield nickel is surprisingly hard to locate in high grade, and examples with cameo contrast are even more elusive. This coin features frosty devices and deeply mirrored fields, with attractive shades of champagne-gold patina. Like many examples seen, excessive die polishing has caused some incomplete detail in some letters in the reverse legend. Population: 17 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (12/12).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 276L, PCGS# 83824)
