    Choice Cameo Proof 1866 Pattern Shield Nickel, Judd-507

    1866 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-507, Pollock-591, R.5, PR64 PCGS. A prototype of the proof 1867 No Rays Shield Nickel. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This popular transitional issue has the stars above the word CENTS pointing between the E and N and between the T and S. This is believed to be the first No Rays die, according to Saul Teichman. All other No Rays reverse dies have the stars above the word CENTS pointing to the E and T. This reverse was used on many 1866 nickel patterns including Judd-507-509. It was also used to strike some regular 1867 proofs in nickel. This is an essentially brilliant example that has deeply mirrored fields and some light but noticeable mint frost on the devices, which gives the coin a cameo effect. Some slight haziness is seen in the fields as the coin is turned under a light. An exceptional transitional Shield Nickel pattern. (NGC ID# 29L6, PCGS# 60703)
