    1873 Closed 3 Shield Nickel
    PR67 Cameo
    The Sole Finest at NGC

    1873 5C Closed 3 PR67★ Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: Rev. Dr. James G. K. McClure Collection. The obverse of this Superb Gem Cameo is close to an Ultra Cameo designation, although the less-contrasted reverse confirms the Cameo grade. This piece is razor-sharp and has a blush of champagne toning. Eye appeal is superb. All proof 1873 Shield nickels have the Closed 3 logotype in the date. The issue is rare in Superb Gem condition, and this piece is the sole finest at NGC. Census: 5 in 67 Cameo (1 in 67 ), 0 finer. CAC: 3 in 67, 0 finer (3/20).
