Description:
PR68 1879/8 Shield Nickel
1879/8 5C PR68 PCGS. The underdigit is clear on this overdated proof, which in itself is an unusual but not unprecedented occurrence in U.S. coinage history. The overdate aside, this is among the most impressively preserved specimens that could be imagined for the issue. While contrast is light, owing to the luminous lavender-blue and peach patina over each side, the mirrors retain considerable gleam, particularly on the reverse. Faintly frosted devices offer characteristically exquisite detail. PCGS has certified six examples as PR68 with one coin numerically finer (3/11).
