Description

Condition Census 1875 Shield Nickel

1875 5C MS66 PCGS. This issue has a respectable original mintage of 2 million coins, but it is not at all common in Mint State. After the 1880 and 1879, the 1875 is the rarest Shield Nickel in Uncirculated grades (per Peters and Mohon, 1995). The present Gem is one of the finest examples extant. The surfaces lack the striking incompleteness and planchet flaws that typically plague survivors of this date. There are, however, numerous fascinating die cracks (as struck) around the peripheries. In fact, it appears as though sizeable portions of both dies were ready to shear off when this coin was impressed. Otherwise, the surfaces are smooth with a hard, satiny sheen and sharp striking definition. Delicate pastel tinged undertones are evident at direct angles. NGC and PCGS combined report just 10 coins in MS66, and there are none finer (7/02). (NGC ID# 22PA, PCGS# 3804)
