Struck the same year Levi Strauss received a patent for blue jeans with rivets, this 1874 coin is from the short-lived Shield nickels series. Issued for only 18 years (1866-1883), the Shield nickel recalls the days when a typical worker earned about 30¢ an hour, so it's easy to see this coin had loads of buying power. America's first nickel makes an interesting addition to any collection, so get yours today.
