This variety is part of the York Street Mint family.  This variety is fairly scarce with only 3 examples documented at the time Bad Metal was published.  This example is quite attractive and shows quite a lot of details.  The only downside to this piece is a small rim ding at 6 o'clock on the obverse.


This variety is part of a small group of counterfeit Shield nickels recently acquired from an East Coast collection.
