1872 Shield Nickel, Choice Uncirculated, PCGS MS-63

0.00

Considered a "common" date by some, despite an estimated survival of less than 10,000 coins in all grades out of a mintage of 6 Million. Perhaps common by typical Shield Nickel standards, however I can tell you I do not find Uncirculated examples available often. Well struck & original, and without the typical hairlines & scuffmarks that typically define a BU Shield Nickel in this grade range. As probably 90%+ of all Uncirculated survivors were put aside randomly and spent time hiding in a bag or box of other coins, issues such as these are the norm rather than the exception. The grade likely limited only by the somewhat "flat" nature of the luster on the Reverse, caused by environmental issues wherever it spent a Century hiding before I submitted it to PCGS.
