1866 5C Rays MS66+ PCGS. The 1866 is the first-year issue for the Shield nickel and the ideal type coin for the short-lived Rays subtype. This high-end Premium Gem example displays satiny luster and a touch of amber-gold tinting. The strike is slightly weak on the reverse stars, possible due in part to extensive die cracks in the reverse margins. Die failure was a rampant problem for the Mint during the early years of Shield nickel coinage due to the hardness of the planchets. Population: 62 in 66 (8 in 66+), 0 finer (7/22). HID06601242017
