Premium Gem 1885 Three Cent Nickel
Mostly Brilliant and Fully Struck

1885 3CN MS66 NGC. CAC. The 1885 three cent nickels and five cent nickels in business strike format are the keys to their respective series, although in truth the three cent nickel has a mintage that is far and away smaller than the five cent. Both series saw proof mintages recorded at 3,790 -- the number of minor proof sets produced -- but while the five cent piece saw nearly 1.5 million business strikes, the three cent production was a minuscule 1,000 coins for circulation. The present Premium Gem is one of the finest certified, an unquestioned business strike with fields that show only a hint of reflectivity from new dies. The strike is full throughout, and the surfaces are mostly brilliant, with just a glint of color. Among the finest at NGC. Census: 6 in 66, 0 finer (11/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 275G, PCGS# 3753)
