1864 Three Cent Silver, MS68
Beautifully Toned, Among the Finest

1864 3CS MS68 NGC. A breathtakingly beautiful example of this elusive business strike 1864 three cent silver. Only 12,470 coins were struck of both proofs and commercial strikings, with 470 of those being proofs. A good percentage of the business strikes were melted during the uncertain years at the close of the Civil War, or in July 1873 upon the discontinuation of the denomination. This lovely specimen is richly toned in variegated shades of gold, green, lilac, and electric-blue. Thick mint frost radiates from the surfaces, and the strike is excellent for a silver three cent. Neither service has graded a single example higher. Census: 5 in 68, 0 finer (7/11).
Ex: New York Signature (Heritage, 7/2004), lot 5367.
From The Daryl J. Haynor Collection.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 22ZE, PCGS# 3684)
