    1875 Shield Nickel, MS66
    Unseen in Higher Grades

    1875 5C MS66 PCGS Secure. While its 2 million coin-mintage suggests otherwise, the 1875 Shield nickel is actually very rare in Premium Gem condition and unseen in higher grades. This Registry-quality offering presents magnificent gold and powder-blue patina with considerable brilliance remaining. The obverse is a touch soft, but the reverse is razor-sharp with a single tick on the denomination. Population: 14 in 66 (3 in 66+), 0 finer (4/17).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22PA, PCGS# 3804)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
