Lot Description
1877 5C PR65 Cameo PCGS. The 1877 Shield nickel was a proof-only issue of 510 pieces, the lowest mintage of the entire series. This crisply struck specimen exhibits an unusually high degree of field-to-device contrast, for the type, with mildly frosted devices and considerable reflectivity in the fields. Population: 32 in 65 Cameo, 29 finer (12/08). From The Scott Rudolph Collection.
