1876 Shield Nickel, Choice BU, PCGS/CAC MS-64

Oddly enough, although most of the other U. S. coins struck in 1876 are relatively available, due to general saving of this Centennial Year's coinage as souvenirs, the Shield Nickel of that year is not particularly common. This is probably due to the relative lack of interest in the denomination at the time - basically, until the Buffalo Nickel came along, collectors and people in general pretty much dismissed the 5 Cent coinage as "utilitarian". This is a nice bright BU specimen, perhaps a bit odd in that the Reverse is nicer than the Obverse - Shield Nickels tend to be the opposite. 196 at PCGS/NGC in the grade versus only 10 CAC (Dec. 2018).
