Description:
1864 Silver Three Cent Piece, PR65 Cameo
Civil War Era Rarity
1864 3CS PR65 Cameo NGC. Because of Civil War era hoarding, very few business-strike 1864 silver three cent pieces were represented in 19th century collections. The date was believed to be a proof only issue until research by R.W. Julian established that 12,000 regular-issue coins were delivered on August 30, 1864, to complement the 470 proofs issued earlier in the year. Even though their survival rate is higher than their business-strike cousins, examples in PR65 Cameo are rare. The present coin is magnificent, with strongly impressed devices contrasting boldly with deeply reflective fields to produce the coveted cameo effect. Census: 4 in 65 Cameo, 8 finer (10/09).(Registry values: N1793) (PCGS# 83714)
