    Gem 1865 Shield Nickel Prototype, Judd-416

    1865 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-416, Pollock-488, High R.6, PR65 NGC. A true prototype issue for the With Rays Shield Nickel, struck from the same dies as the proofs of 1866 with a plain center dot. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This bright, watery Gem is reasonably sharp and has a monochromatic appearance. While not as well known as the 1867 Rays proof, Judd-416 is believed to be every bit as scarce. Population: 2 in 65, 1 finer (4/05).
    From The Western Hills Collection.(#60598)
