Description

Premium Gem 1863 Silver Three Cent Piece
Scarce Civil War Issue

1863 3CS MS66 PCGS. The 1863 silver three cent piece had a meager mintage of 21,000 pieces. All coins with precious metal content were hoarded during the Civil War, many were exported or melted. The supply of Premium Gem specimens is quite limited today, and few survivors can match the appeal of the present coin. The striking details are sharp throughout, while the surfaces are lustrous, with light champagne highlights. A single spot at 9 o'clock on the reverse is the only blemish. Population: 15 in 66, 3 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22ZD, PCGS# 3682)
