This variety is part of the Lewinski-Loughrey Mint family.  Examples of this variety are rare and only four examples were documented when Bad Metal was published.  This example exhibits a lot of wear which is currently unusual for examples of this variety.  Nevertheless, the originality of this piece remains preserved.

 

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