    GRADE: NGC MS 63


    NGC COIN WEBSITE:  https://www.ngccoin.com

    The 1866 RAYS United States 5C NGC MS 63 coin is a United States five-cent piece (also known as a Shield nickel) minted in 1866 with a distinctive design feature and certified in uncirculated condition. Here's a description of this specific coin's grade and features:

    1. 1866 RAYS: The 1866 Shield nickel features a unique design element known as "RAYS," which refers to the radiating lines found on the reverse side of the coin, between the stars surrounding the numeral "5." This design was used only in 1866 and for part of 1867 before being removed due to difficulties in the striking process. The "RAYS" variant is more sought after by collectors as it represents a unique and short-lived design within the Shield nickel series.
    2. NGC: The coin has been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a leading third-party coin grading service. NGC assigns a numerical grade to coins based on their condition, providing a standardized and objective evaluation to collectors and dealers.
    3. MS 63: MS stands for "Mint State," which is a grading term used to describe coins that have never been in circulation and have retained their original mint luster. The number "63" is a numerical grade within the Mint State range (MS-60 to MS-70) and reflects the coin's overall condition. A grade of MS-63 is considered "Choice Uncirculated" and indicates that the coin is in above-average uncirculated condition. It may have some contact marks or other minor imperfections, but the coin is still very attractive.

    In summary, an 1866 RAYS United States 5C NGC MS 63 coin is a Shield nickel from 1866 featuring the RAYS design on the reverse. It has been certified by NGC as being in Choice Uncirculated condition (MS-63). This coin is desirable for collectors due to its unique design and above-average uncirculated condition.
