Ron Guth: The 1875 Shield Nickel is a relatively common coin, though it is far less available than the super-common dates such as the 1868 and 1869.  In Mint State, the grade seen most frequently is MS-64, followed by MS-63, then MS-65.  The best examples are a cluster of PCGS MS-66s that fill out the Condition Census.  Look for the usual die cracks -- they are nearly impossible to avoid.
