Description:
1865 Copper Three Cent Nickel
Judd-413, PR65 Brown
Regular Issue Design, Boldly Repunched Date
1865 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-413, Pollock-484, R.6, PR65 Brown NGC.
Design.
The regular issue design for the three cent nickel, with normal sized ribbons. Struck in copper with a plain edge. The date is boldly repunched as on regular issue proof examples. Faint die lines extend from the border through STA, also identical to the regular issue proofs.

Commentary. Although they were almost certainly struck for sale to collectors, these pieces were actually minted in 1865, based on the shared die with regular issue pieces. More than a dozen are known, mostly from the dies seen on the Newman example. A rare variant is known from a different obverse die that lacks the repunched date.

Physical Description. A bold strike includes prominent rims on both sides of this lovely Gem proof. Rich olive-brown surfaces exhibit delicate turquoise overtones on both sides.

Provenance. "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $15; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 60594)
