Description

1880 Shield Nickel, XF40
Rare Circulation Strike

1880 5C XF40 PCGS. The low mintage of only 16,000 circulation strikes makes this a key to the Shield nickel series. All too often, mishandled proofs are substituted for the rare business strikes. There is no question about this piece's status. The dove-gray surfaces have no trace of reflectivity in the fields. There is also a die crack above the motto on the obverse, and it may extend even further but the plastic lip of the encasement prevents positively stating so. No untoward marks are seen on either side. Population: 5 in 40, 42 finer (2/13).(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 276E, PCGS# 3810)
