1867 Shield Nickel, No Rays, AU-55

115.00

A solid, problem free original Choice AU example, with the slightly "greasy" gray-green color an unmolested Shield (or Liberty) Nickel should be. A full balanced strike showing all star radials and shield lines, and only one tiny die crack. The Reverse rim shows a bit of a "fin" of metal where it squeezed out between the die and collar - most likely struck fairly early after the Reverse hub design was changed to the "No Rays" Type, and the Mint was learning how to balance the striking pressure on the press.
