1850 Pattern Three Cents in Silver1850 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-125 Original, Pollock-147, R.4, PR65 NGC.
Design. The obverse shows a Liberty cap with resplendent rays surrounding. LIBERTY is on the bottom part of the cap, and the date 1850 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.
Commentary. It is thought that originals and restrikes were minted, although they are indistinguishable today. The design is a close copy of Christian Gobrecht's 1836 gold dollar pattern, Judd-67. These patterns were produced in anticipation of regular issue coinage that began the following year.
Physical Description. This deeply toned Gem has reflective fields beneath pale gold and cobalt-blue patina with splashes and spots of darker toning.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 11536)
