Description

Difficult 1885 Three Cent Nickel, MS66

1885 3CN MS66 PCGS. CAC. The year 1885 saw a scant mintage of 1,000 three cent nickel business strikes, the lowest circulation-strike production in the series. As expected, this date is difficult to locate in any grade level. PCGS and NGC have certified only about 100 specimens in all levels of preservation.
The light gray surfaces of this Premium Gem display blushes of subtle gold and ice-blue when viewed under magnification, and an exacting strike leaves virtually complete definition on the design elements, including the lines of the III denomination. A few minuscule flecks are undisturbing. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 10 in 66, 2 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 275G, PCGS# 3753)
