Description

1856 Three Cent Silver, Richly Toned MS65
Extraordinary, Original Surfaces

1856 3CS MS65 NGC. CAC. The mintage for the 1856 three cent silver was generous, compared to the previous year, with 1.4 million pieces struck. Still, only 15 Gems have survived according to NGC Census data, and a mere four are finer (10/13). All too often the problem for collectors is not only one of unavailability of the Type Two in high grades, but an even greater problem of originality. Those who view the Newman coins will come to the same conclusion as we the catalogers have: These are original coins. This particular piece has deep olive and rose toning that covers each side. Look beneath and bright mint luster flashes at the viewer. The obverse is fully detailed, while the reverse shows slight softness of definition, as often seen. Light die clashing is noted at the top of the obverse.
Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22Z5, PCGS# 3672)
