    Description

    1870 Shield Nickel in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-807, PR66
    Thin Planchet

    1870 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-807, Pollock-895, Low R.7, PR66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Struck on a thin planchet from regular issue dies with a plain edge and in the regular copper-nickel alloy. Researcher Saul Teichman states that the planchets for the variety may have been cut from three cent nickel stock. The underweight planchets were likely as intended, since the variety was struck in proof format and the die spacing appears to have been adjusted properly, given the sharp strike of the present piece. Undisturbed save for a few distributed flecks. Population: 1 in 66, 1 finer (9/20).
