    THE MOTHER OR ALL SHIELD NICKELS!!!

    I dug this shield nickel today. I am having trouble typing right now. The date is legible..My camera is having trouble picking up the details. Wish my HD camera was working. I have dug 1 shield nickel and 4 V-Nickels from a 20 ft square..Today when this one came out I could see the shield and knew it was a shield Nickel. I had no Idea it was 1 of 16,000 minted..May I introduce you to my best coin to date... I won't be cleaning this one.

    1 of 16,000 Minted in 1880

    Brother, that is a great one!!! I have one that isnt in that good of shape at all and as a matter of fact you can only read the date with water running over it or just berfor it dries and was told it was worth a lot. Aint not telling what yours is worth. Congrats!!! ...d2

    Wow, great find! Even in that condition it's probably worth a couple hundred dollars. That's one of the rarest key date coins out there.

    I would have to say that given the numbers of that one it deserves to have a spot on the BANNER

    Way to go! Per my Redbook worst possible shape and it's worth at least $450.

    Pretty good for a nickel.

    Re: THE MOTHER OR ALL SHIELD NICKELS!!!

    Thanks Plehbah. I realize it is rare. Everywhere I look online they list as Rare in any condition. Mine is in fairly decent condition. You can still make out details. I'm not going to clean it. I am going to put it in a coin holder and keep it. Do you think if I wanted to I could get a Minelab Etrac by selling the coin? I don't think I will sell it.
