This is the first nickel five-cent coin, and the series contains two major types, the 1866-67 With Rays and the 1867-83 No Rays. The circulation strikes in the series are filled with "problem" coins, such as the 1867 Rays which is almost always poorly struck. Many issues also have planchet problems and/or poor luster. Many of the proof coins in this set are found with a frosty appearance that is more characteristic of a business strike than a proof, but that's the way of nickel coinage in the 1870s and 1880s. This series is composed of an attractive and historic coin and that means popularity.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
