    1882 Shield Nickel in Nickel
    Judd-1693, PR67 Deep Cameo

    1882 5C Shield Five Cents, Judd-1693, Pollock-1895, Low R.7, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The dies are similar to the adopted regular issue No Rays design that was in use in 1882, but there is no ball at the bottom point of the shield. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. USPatterns.com lists an estimated population of about a dozen pieces for the nickel variety, with other pieces known in copper, aluminum, and white metal. This piece is fully struck and deeply mirrored, showing wispy shades of amber-gold toning around the margins. The cameo contrast is appreciable on both sides. Eye appeal is exceptional.
