Sale 65

Lot 834

1883. PCGS graded MS-67. Well struck, brilliant and untoned. Business strike Shield nickels appear to be one of the more undervalued areas in the coin market today. They are very scarce in an absolute sense, especially in comparison to their Proof counterparts, and are also very challenging to locate in better-than-Gem grades. This is a superb brilliant coin that displays generous, thickly frosted surfaces whose only imperfections (if they can be called that) are Mint-made die breaks crisscrossing the obverse. Boldness of strike as seen on many of the shield nickels struck in 1883, which the new owner will appreciate when examining and marveling over this fantastic specimen in years to come. Pop 9; non finer (PCGS # 3813) .
Estimated Value $3,300 - 3,600.

Realized $3,450
