    1879 Shield Nickel, MS67
    Tied for Finest Known

    1879 5C MS67 NGC. A Superb Gem grade is fitting for this lovely 1879 Shield nickel, and were the luster a shade more vibrant, rather than satiny, it might have garnered an MS68 designation. Nonetheless, this piece ranks alongside three others as the finest at NGC, while the best PCGS has seen is a single MS66+ coin (5/15). This piece is boldly struck and blemish-free throughout each side, and displays a warm patina of golden color overall.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 276D, PCGS# 3808)

    Weight: 5.00 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
