    1868 Shield 'Nickel' in Aluminum
    Judd-636, PR64 Cameo
    The Only PCGS Cameo Proof

    1868 5C Five Cents, Judd-636, Pollock-708, Low R.7, PR64 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Garrett-Simpson. The Shield nickel regular-issue dies of 1868, struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Only a half dozen pieces are known in this metal. In our view, while all of the aluminum patterns of 1868 are quite rare, those with the unusual, one-off designs -- the Indian cent, two cent piece, three cent "nickel," three cent "silver," Shield "nickel," and three dollar "gold" -- in aluminum possess a special cachet. This aluminum Shield nickel would certainly round out an advanced set. This lovely Choice Cameo proof, an impressive bluish-gray example, is the finest that PCGS has certified, and the only submission designated as a Cameo (1/21).
