9198077
Gem $1025 Gem Original, 1879/8 Overdate Designation, Poetic Candy Collection. The 1879/8 overdate designation is seen on a subset of 1879 Shield proof nickels. Though PCGS recognized the overdate, other numismatists believe this is only a repunched date. Regardless, this filled 9 variety is rare and deserves attention when offered. This specimen has been off the market for decades and resides in early "squishy" generation PCGS holder. Surfaces are entirely blemish free and provide substantial steely gray reflections. Strike is well executed throughout obverse and reverse. Typical old time quality from the Poetic Candy collection. Housed in early PCGS old green holder. Please don't miss this opportunity given the CAC approval.

Shield  1883 1883
PF63 raw
Choice $330 Choice Original Proof, Hamden Collection, Formerly NGC PF63. Purchased from Hamden Collection and a choice example for the grade. The Hamden collector is a purist and obviously purchases the coin and not the holder since all coins are cracked out and placed in Dansco album. This lovely proof shield nickel was previously certified as NGC PF63 with the label being sold with the coin. A nice proof strike with few blemishes for the assigned grade.
