1850 'Cap and Rays' Three Cent Silver
Judd-125 Original, PR63

1850 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-125 Original, Pollock-147, R.4, PR63 NGC. The obverse has a Liberty cap surrounded by rays. LIBERTY is on the bottom part of the cap and the date is below. A palm branch encircles the entire reverse to form a wreath, enclosing the numeral III. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA rings the rim. Struck in silver with a plain edge. This 1850 version was modeled after Christian Gobrecht's design from 1836, which was in turn influenced by the Mexican Cap and Rays design. Both sides show significant iridescent toning and much deeper color outlining the devices, which tends to slightly subdue the reflectivity in the fields. A couple of light pinscratches that account for the grade appear in the center reverse. (NGC ID# 298G, PCGS# 11536)
