    1870 Shield Nickel in Nickel
    Thin Planchet, Judd-807, PR67

    1870 5C Shield Nickel, Judd-807, Pollock-895, Low R.7, PR67 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Both the obverse and reverse designs are the same as that used for regular issue coinage. Struck in nickel on a thin planchet. Saul Teichman speculates some of the thin planchet strikings were actually struck on three cent nickel stock. Examples were also struck in copper and aluminum. This is an atypical proof strike for a Shield nickel, perhaps of better quality because of the thinner planchet. The strike is intricately detailed in all areas and the fields are deeply reflective.
