Description

Gem 1879 Shield Nickel

1879 5C MS66 PCGS. This is an extremely important opportunity for the Shield nickel Set Registry collector. In fact, the present sale has several high quality Mint State shield nickels, including Gem examples of the 1880 and 1883/2 overdate, along with others. While this 1879 issue is not in the same rarity class as those others, it is still a highly elusive issue in top quality. Most high-grade 1879 nickels are proof examples, and most of those are overdates. This example is sharply struck with soft, frosty nickel-gray luster and excellent eye appeal.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 276D, PCGS# 3808)
