Description

MS63 1885 Three Cent Nickel
Key to the Circulation Strikes

1885 3CN MS63 PCGS. The 1885 three cent nickel is one of those few U.S. coin rarities (at least from the "classic era") where fewer business strikes were made than proofs -- 1,000 of the former compared to 3,790 of the latter. This is a no-questions circulation strike, with absolutely no trace of any proof impression or surface. Each side is powder-gray with a few scattered dark flecks. A trio of small scrapes appears beneath the III in the denomination, the only mentionable contact evidence. Certified in a first-generation holder. Population: 6 in 63, 39 finer (11/11).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 275G, PCGS# 3753)
