1866 Rays Shield Nickel PCGS MS62 CAC PQ


CAC approved. A coin that may redefine the MS62 for you. It has for me. Try as I might, I cannot get to less than 63 and fully Choice. This coin is magnificent for the assigned grade...well struck, totally original, fully lustrous, lacking notable marks, and with great eye appeal. There are 2 small areas of planchet roughness at the lower left obverse, but they are naturally occurring and not unusual in this series. Maybe if we call it MS62.99 I could get on board...maybe. A great example of this short-lived design.
