1868 5C PR66 Cameo PCGS. This is a high-end proof example of this early No Rays Shield nickel, with frosty design elements and deeply mirrored fields. A loupe fails to reveal any mentionable surface flaws and each side is cast in the glow of a light golden patina. Premium Gem examples of the 1868 proof are scarce, and are rarely seen with a Cameo designation. Good candidate for upgrade. Population: 15 in 66 (2 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (7/15).
