Description

1866/1866 Rays Shield Nickel, MS65
Bold FS-301 Repunched Date Variety

1866/1866 5C Rays MS65 NGC. FS-301. Certified as such by NGC, the present Gem displays the quadruply offset entire date that characterizes this bold Cherrypickers' variety. Steel-gray surfaces show subdued luster and some interesting peripheral die cracks.

Variety: FS-301. Cherrypickers' comments: "All four date digits are repunched, with secondary images clearly visible east of the primary digits."

Population Data (4/14): NGC has certified three Gems of the FS-301 with none finer. PCGS does not show separate data for this variety.

Heritage Commentary: The collecting of the many Shield nickel varieties enumerated in Cherrypickers' can be a pleasant and potentially profitable pastime. Although there are several bold varieties of repunched-date 1866 nickels (FS-301 through FS-305), the FS-301 is the boldest of the lot.

Provenance: Purchased from Bill Nagle (8/2012).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22NX, PCGS# 3790)
