    1867 Rays Nickel, MS62
    Scarce Variety, Two-year Type

    1867 5C Rays MS62 NGC. The mintage of With Rays nickels represents merely 6.5% of all Shield nickel production in the series' second year. The rays were removed from the reverse early in 1867 after excessive striking difficulty was encountered, creating a popular two-year type. This Uncirculated representative displays crisp detail on the shield, upper olive leaves, and stars. The 7 in the date is slightly incomplete. Soft luster and occasional olive specks occur over minimally marked nickel-gray surfaces.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
