Lewinski-Loughery Mint family. All hand-made, die struck Shield nickel counterfeits and varieties are rare and seldom come up for sale.  This example exhibits a fair bit of circulation. It has a 'circulation cameo' appearance, except that the dark red/purple coloration in the fields is from micro-porosity.  It is this environmental damage which has brough the price down.  Otherwise, if you want an affordable example of this counterfeit type or Shield nickel variety, this piece might suit your interest.
