Description

1869 Three Cent Nickel in Aluminum
Judd-679, PR67 Ultra Cameo
The Finest Known Example

1869 3CN Three Cent Nickel, Judd-679, Pollock-758, High R.7, PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC.
Design. Struck from dies of the regular design in aluminum, instead of the usual copper-nickel alloy, with a plain edge.

Commentary. This example and another certified PR64 are the only two that NGC has examined. PCGS has seen five, including one certified PR66 Deep Cameo. The Newman example is the finest known Judd-679.

Physical Description. This is a stunning Superb Gem. Brilliant light gray surfaces with deeply mirrored fields nicely frame the frosty and highly lustrous devices, enhancing their bold design definition. Myriad die polishing lines are noted 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 @ $25; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 60904)
