1878 Shield Nickel. PCGS graded Proof 65. Nice even toning. From one side to the other the luminous nickel-smooth luster glows with satiny brilliance typical of the 1878 Proof-only strikes. All this is perhaps obvious from the photos. What we need to emphasize further is that the strike is customarily crisp and detailed for the issue with the usual sharp metal flows into the deepest recesses of the dies on both sides. A gem! 2,350 Proofs minted (PCGS # 3832) .
Estimated Value $1,400 - 1,500.

Realized $1,800
