Description

MS62 1880 Shield Nickel
Elusive Business Strike

1880 5C MS62 ANACS. The business strike and proof 1880 Shield nickels were struck from the same dies, apparently, but this piece lacks any of the characteristics expected on proofs, i.e. there is no field reflectivity nor evidence of the squared-off rims that proofs show. Some of the obverse laurel leaves also show incomplete venation, another diagnostic that, if full, would help distinguish this piece as a proof. The strike is sharp elsewhere, however, and each side shows deep reddish-russet toning. The grade is limited by an area of pinscratching that appears between the stars on the reverse at 4 o'clock.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 276E, PCGS# 3810)
