    1866 No Rays Nickel
    Judd-507, PR67

    1866 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-507, Pollock-591, R.5, PR67 NGC. CAC. 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. This is a gorgeous Superb Gem Proof example with vibrant ochre and lime coloration, with additional rose and teal on the reverse. All design features are boldly defined, and the fields are deeply mirrored beneath the toning.
    Ex: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 11/2004), lot 7306.
