This composite is for PCGS-graded coins that have been stickered by CAC. When adding coins to this set, they will be cross checked against CAC's certification verification to ensure legitimacy.

This series popular with collectors even though there is a major stopper in the set with the 1867 Rays. Many of the 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. Deeply reflective or frosty, 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.
