Description:
Exceptional PR68 1879 Three Cent Nickel
1879 3CN PR68 NGC. The proofs of this issue were produced from three obverse dies. This die shows filling on neither the 8 nor the 9, and the date is further to the right than on other dies. The 9 is marginally higher and smaller than the remaining digits. The left serif of the 1 is over a space between two dentils. The reverse die, also used on the 1880 three cent nickels, shows fragmented ribbon and leaf details.
Only one word is needed to describe the brilliance and light original champagne-gold color of this remarkable Superb Gem proof three cent nickel: Wow! The 1879 proof is just another date in the three cent nickel series, not overly scarce, even in grades as high as PR66. But the parade slows above that level, and stops at MS68. If only the finest will do, consider this piece. Census: 6 in 68, 0 finer (1/08).
