    1866 No Rays Shield Nickel
    Judd-507, PR65

    1866 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-507, Pollock-591, R.5, PR65 PCGS. This transitional pattern lacks the rays found on regular issue 1866 Shield nickels. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The reverse differs slightly from 1867 No Rays business strikes, since a star points to the center of the first A in AMERICA, rather than between AM. Some rare 1867 proofs were struck from this reverse subtype, believed to be the first No Rays die. About two dozen examples are known of this pattern in nickel, while half that number are extant in copper or bronze. The fields display remarkable depth of reflectivity with a slight accent of iridescence on each side.
