Owner Comments:

Wide date, dies A & IIa. My first shield nickel. It's not fully struck on the stars, but the all important shield certainly is. This coin has an amazing original crust that is toned deep gold and light russet. The death penalty should be given to anyone who dares to dip this piece.
