Description:
Gem Proof 1856 Silver Three Cent Piece
Only Two Coins Certified Finer
1856 3CS PR65 NGC. The mintage of silver three cent pieces in 1856 is unrecorded, but it was undoubtedly small. Walter Breen estimated the surviving proof population at 30-40 pieces in all grades. The present coin is certainly one of the finest survivors, with brightly reflective fields and sharply defined devices. The only area of softness is the A in STATES. The central design elements are frosty and the surfaces are virtually untoned, except for a light touch of pink on the star. Currently, NGC has certified only three coins in PR65, with two finer, while PCGS has also graded three proof examples at the Gem level, with none finer (6/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 27C3, PCGS# 3703)
