Superb 1865 Three Cent Nickel Among Highest Certified

1865 3CN MS67 PCGS. Delicate chestnut and cream-gray colors grace this shimmering and magnificently preserved Superb Gem. A boldly struck piece, the A in STATES and the pillars of the denomination are not completely brought up, but nonetheless have excellent definition for a commercial strike. The Three Cent Nickel was introduced in 1865, and was important to commerce during its initial years since silver coins were hoarded, driven from circulation by paper money without specie backing. Although more than 11 million pieces were struck, and Uncirculated pieces are not rare, most have indifferent strikes or are abraded from improper storage. Virtually immaculate examples, such as the present piece, are of the highest rarity. Population: 2 in 67, none finer (1/05).
From the Bruce Scher #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.(#3731) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22NJ, PCGS# 3731)
