    Die Trial Striking of the 1867 No Rays Shield Nickel

    1867 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-573, Pollock-649, R.7, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Die trials striking of the 1867 No Rays Shield Nickel, struck in copper with a plain edge. The position of the reverse stars relative to the first T in STATES, the E IN STATES, the C in CENT, the N in CENTS, and the S in CENTS suggest that this reverse die is the same used to coin 1866 pattern Shield Nickels. Per Pollock (1994), this is Reverse A. Both sides are toned in golden-olive shades that deepen to medium brown patina in the centers. There do not appear to be any contact marks or carbon flecks that would bar this coin from an even higher grade. (NGC ID# 29ME, PCGS# 70783)
