1866 Shield Nickel, Choice Uncirculated, Great Color & PQ!

629.00

A nice example of the first year of U. S. Nickel coinage, in an ANACS MS-63 slab, very PQ for the assigned grade. Frankly, this appears undergraded, as it is basically identical to the PCGS certified MS-64 example also listed. Regardless, a heck of a nice coin, with attractive toning, very unusual for a Shield Nickel. Certainly worth a premium.

I am asking a premium for this coin versus the assigned grade, however if you know the series, I think it will be reasonable …
