Lot Description
1871 5C PR66 Deep Cameo NGC. The 1871 (960 pieces produced) ranks seventh in rarity among proof Shield Nickels (per Peters and Mohon, 1995). What's more, this issue is anything but common with a Deep Cameo finish. This is the first coin to receive such a designation from NGC or PCGS (7/02), and it is a bright, untoned Gem. The glassy fields form a splendid backdrop to the powerfully impressed and warmly frosted devices. There is not a single blemish that would call into question the validity of the PR66 grade.
