Unveiling a Historic Piece: 1867 Shield Nickel

This auction offers a chance to own a piece of numismatic history: an 1867 Shield Nickel! Here's a description to capture its collectability:

The First Nickel Five Cents:

Minted from 1866 to 1883, Shield Nickels were the first five-cent pieces made of nickel instead of the previous copper-nickel alloy. The 1867 issue holds particular significance for collectors.

The "Rays" Variation:

Early 1867 Shield Nickels featured rays bursting from behind the shield on the reverse. However, due to production difficulties, these rays were eliminated later in 1867.

  • 1867 "With Rays": Scarcer and more valuable than the standard 1867 Shield Nickel.
  • 1867 "No Rays" (standard): More common but still a collectible piece.

Highlight Your Nickel:

  • Indicate if your 1867 Shield Nickel has "Rays" or "No Rays" on the reverse.
  • Describe the coin's condition (circulated or uncirculated). Circulated examples are more common, while uncirculated specimens can be quite valuable.
  • Include high-quality images showcasing both sides of the coin.

A Collector's Delight:

Whether it features rays or not, an 1867 Shield Nickel represents a pivotal moment in American coinage – the introduction of the nickel five-cent piece. Owning this coin allows you to hold a tangible piece of history and appreciate the early design of America's beloved nickel.
