Hey, let's put this set together! This is the first nickel five-cent coin, and the series contains two major types, the 1866-67 Rays and the 1867-83 No Rays. This series is filled with "problem" coins, as the 1867 Rays is almost always poorly struck and many issues have planchet problems and/or poor luster. Some collectors include the proof coins of 1877 and 1878 in this set as well.
