Amazing 1872 Shield Nickel, MS67
Tied for Finest Certified

1872 5C MS67 NGC. With a recorded mintage of slightly more than 6 million pieces, the 1872 Shield nickel is available in all grades up to the Gem Uncirculated level, although it is not as easy to locate as the large mintage would indicate. Relatively few business strikes were saved by collectors at the time of issue. The date becomes very rare above MS65, with only two coins certified in MS67, both at NGC (3/09).
The present coin is an unimprovable specimen, tied with one other example for finest certified honors. The strike is sharp throughout with crisp detail on all design elements and rich, satiny luster on the unblemished surfaces. Beautiful rose, pale blue, and yellow toning add even more to the staggering overall visual appeal.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22P6, PCGS# 3799)
