Description:
1868 Three Cent Nickel Pattern
Judd-615, Thick Planchet, PR64
1868 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-615, Pollock-680, R.5, PR64 NGC. Similar in design to the contemporary three cent nickel, but the wreath on the reverse is that of the Flying Eagle cent and the Roman numeral lacks fluting on the columns. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The obverse rim is unusually wide, while the reverse is narrower than normal. Tom DeLorey suggested that the obverse design is a regular 17.9-mm three cent obverse set in a one cent-size 19.1-mm die blank, leaving the wide borders, whereas the reverse is normal one cent-size. These were struck in thick and thin planchet variants, and this piece appears to be a thick-planchet striking. The surfaces are mostly brilliant, and the fields show evidence of hurried die preparation from the numerous die striations in the fields. A couple of small spots are on each side.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (PCGS# 60827)
