1863 Three Cent Pattern in Gem Proof Condition, Judd-3191863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319 Original, Pollock-384, R.5-6, PR65 Red and Brown NGC. The obverse is similar to the old Braided Hair cent design with much smaller digits in the date. The reverse has 3 CENTS in the center and is surrounded by a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA at the margin. Struck in bronze or copper with a plain edge. According to the USPatterns.com website, these patterns were made at numerous times on planchets of various thicknesses. This is a lovely example that retains generous portions of original mint red around the devices with steel-gray and blue patina elsewhere. A fully detailed example of this popular and unusual "retro" design pattern. (#70477) (PCGS# 70477)
