Description

Rare and Popular 1883/2 Shield Nickel, MS65
FS-303 With Partial Die Cud

1883/2 5C MS65 PCGS. FS-303. A die break on the first 8 in the date, reminiscent of the S-197 1800 cent "Q" variety, identifies the specific 1883/2 obverse. The die break is actually a partial die cud from a die crack that runs from rim to rim from 7 to 6 o'clock. On later states a full cud forms in this area. FS-303 is considered the most "common" of the four overdates for 1883 and may represent as many as 75% of 1883/2 nickels. Nevertheless, these pieces are rare in the absolute sense as well as condition rarities. The surfaces on this piece are brightly lustrous and the strike is sharp, with very pale caramel-gold and ice-blue toning. Population: 4 in 65, 3 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22PD, PCGS# 3814)

I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
