NEAT! We can’t say we see undipped really nice pieces like this often at all anymore.
Only with a very strong glass can you find a tiny tick or two.There are a few interesting die breaks visible. The texture is slightly satiny/slightly matte like. A strong luster shows off totally original nickel/pale rose/gold color. All of the details are well struck. Remember, this is a 140 year old coin! The eye appeal is wonderful.
PCGS 12, NGC 6, CAC 4. PCGS has only two higher-both MS66+. The last one of these to sell in auction brought $4,112.50 07/2014. The current Collectors Universe Value is $5,250.00. If you want something different and challenging-assemble an MS set of Shield Nickels-it can be done!
