Lot Description
1877 5C PR66 Cameo NGC. The 1877 is the unquestioned key to the Shield nickel series. It is a proof-only date and only 510 pieces are estimated to have been struck. This is a deeply mirrored example (not all are) and the devices show significant mint luster, yielding strong contrast on each side. Brilliant throughout.
