Description

Key Date Gem Proof 1877 Shield Nickel

1877 5C PR66 PCGS. A gorgeous Gem Proof that has nearly perfect surfaces on the obverse and reverse. The periphery is toned with typical nickel blue hues, while the centers are brighter with gold and rose iridescence. This proof only date has long been the key to the Shield nickel series, and this coin is one of the finest seen. We note a couple of faint ticks on the reverse for identification, one just above the top left of the 5, another right of the midsection near the upper curve of the body of the 5. Outstanding quality for this date. Population: 31 in 66, 0 finer (8/05).(#3831) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 276U, PCGS# 3831)
