Proof Shield Nickels

The Philadelphia Mint struck proof versions of the Shield Nickel for each year from 1866 to 1883 inclusive. These coins were produced with sharp strikes and mirrored finish for collectors. Mintage levels were significantly lower when compared to regular circulation strikes.

Proof Shield Nickels make a beautiful and impressive collection. Most collectors seek high grade examples that have been certified by PCGS or NGC.
