Description:
Gem 1879 Shield Nickel
Few Business Strikes Made
1879 5C MS65 PCGS. Only 25,900 business-strike Shield nickels were coined in 1879, as the Philadelphia Mint allocated its resources to produce nearly 15 million Morgan dollars that year. The low mintage makes the 1879 Shield nickel a scarce date in all grades, and examples in Gem condition are quite rare. The present coin is a sharply struck Gem, patinated in shades of rose on the obverse and light green on the reverse, with strong mint luster under the toning. Population: 31 in 65 (1 in 65+), 22 finer (1/13).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 276D, PCGS# 3808)
