    Gem 1883/2 Shield Nickel
    Only Three Finer Coins at PCGS

    1883/2 5C MS65 PCGS. FS-303. A die break on the first 8 in the date, reminiscent of the S-197 1800 cent "Q" variety, identifies the specific 1883/2 obverse. The die break is actually a partial die cud from a die crack that runs from rim to rim from 6 to 7 o'clock. On later states a full cud forms in this area. FS-303 is considered the most "common" of the four overdates for 1883 and may represent as many as 75% of 1883/2 nickels. Nevertheless, these pieces are rare in the absolute sense as well as condition rarities. The surfaces on this piece are brightly lustrous and the strike is sharp, with very pale caramel-gold and ice-blue toning. Population: 4 in 65, 3 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22PD, PCGS# 3814)

    The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
