    1865 No Rays Shield Nickel in Nickel
    Judd-418, PR67 Cameo

    1865 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-418, Pollock-490, High R.6, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the traditional Shield nickel design used for regular-issue coinage in 1866. The reverse features the Without Rays design adopted in 1867. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. According to Saul Teichman of, Judd-418:

    "uses a heavily polished reverse die such that features in the lettering have been worn away. Breen described this die as an 1868 die. I date it to the 1870s due to the fact that in this overpolished state it was used to strike regular 1870 proof nickels. These are clearly restrikes."

    This virtually untoned Superb Gem nickel pattern showcases profound field-device contrast, with watery fields and frosted motifs. Flawlessly preserved. This is the first Judd-418 we have handled in more than six years.
