Description:
Pristine Gem 1885 Three Cent Nickel
1,000 Circulation Strikes Minted
1885 3CN MS65 PCGS. The mintage of the 1885 three cent nickel was the lowest of the series at 1,000 business strikes, even lower than the 1884 that preceded it at 1,700 coins. Even though the three cent nickels as a series were largely irrelevant after the introduction of the Shield five cent nickels in 1866, the successful reinvigoration of circulating silver coinage in 1873-74 sealed their fate, and the 1883 introduction of the Liberty nickel design merely served to reinforce their uselessness. Some of the mid- to late-1880s issues, produced as the series limped toward eventual death in 1889, are among the most interesting in the series. The present Gem is certified in a small first-generation green-label holder, displaying lots of eye appeal and nary a distraction over smooth silver-gray surfaces. Population: 12 in 65, 12 finer (6/11).
