Description:
1883/2 Overdate Shield Nickel
FS-304, Superb Gem
1883/2 5C MS67 NGC. CAC. FS-304. The Shield nickel series is loaded with overdates, repunched dates, doubled die (and tripled die) obverses, and other anomalies, sometimes in combination, making the series a field day for variety collectors. Many of the more popular varieties are listed in the Cherrypickers' Guide, including five of the final-year 1883/2 overdates. On the FS-304, as here, the secondary 2 is visible but weak, appearing to the left of the 3. This Superb Gem offers bright, lightly striated fields that at first look brilliant, but when closely examined show subtle oil-slick iridescence. The noticeably striated fields give the coin a semireflective appearance. Minor high-point softness appears on the obverse. This is the single finest 1883/2 certified at NGC (4/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22PD, PCGS# 3814)
