    1866 No Rays Shield Nickel
    Struck in Nickel
    Judd-507, PR66 Cameo

    1866 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-507, Pollock-591, R.5, PR66 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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 and suggesting a contemporary production. A lovely Premium Gem Cameo proof with pristine mirrored fields and boldly detailed devices, presenting strong contrast. PCGS has certified 39 of these, the total including just 10 designated as Cameo proofs. Population: 2 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (1/21).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29L6, PCGS# 860703)
