1866 5C Rays PR66 PCGS #3817

CAC. 38/1 (11/13). Pale green and violet patina enhances the pristine surfaces of this spectacular Premium Gem proof Shield nickel. The reported mintage of 600 pieces has been challenged by some experts, and estimates vary considerably from one authority to another. Certainly, only a few survivors can match the appeal of this magnificent coin, as PCGS has certified only one example in higher numeric grade (10/10).

CAC. 359/20 (5/13)

1937 5C PR67 PCGS #3996

CAC. This extremely flashy Superb Gem remains free of toning and displays bold detail. The surfaces of this example are virtually pristine other than a small depression near the bison's front hooves. Only 12 examples have achieved numerically higher grades from PCGS (12/12). From The Richard P. Ariagno, M.D. Collection. 434/32 (5/13)
