SHIELD NICKELS
1866-1883

The following is a quote from the back cover of "The Shield Five Cent Series" by Edward L. Fletcher, Jr. :  "The shield five cent series is one of the few remaining areas of unexplored territory in U. S. numismatics.  Although some varieties have been publicized, they are literally the tip of an enormous variety iceberg.  These varieties range from doubled dies to repunched dates, to die and hub varieties" ..... "One of the most frequently underrated coins in U. S. numismatics, the shield five cent series is a cherrypickers dream come true".
