1870 5C Nickel Shield PCGS MS66+ (CAC)
No question this coin was carefully saved since the day it left the bank. It really does border on full MS67!
Fantastic surfaces are the epitome of perfection. We used a strong glass and looked hard all over and found NO problems. There is a strong beaming luster. Both sides have a light pewter layer of toning but the coin does look full nickel color. We believe this coin was never dipped or messed with. All of the details are well struck. The eye appeal is exceptional!
PCGS 16, NGC 5, CAC 8. PCGS has graded 7 in MS66+ with none graded higher at PCGS. The current Collectors Universe value is $5,000.00. It is not impossible to build a SUPERB GEM set. Opportunity knocks loud here in this “off” series.
