1872 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-1185, Pollock-1325, High R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Each side displays the regular three cent nickel design for the year. Struck in copper with a plain edge. "Dies trial" is a misnomer for these and similar off-metal strikings. It is more accurate to say they were produced deliberately for sale to collectors. Quantities were kept to a minimum, and probably no more than a half a dozen are believed to exist. The present Red and Brown Premium Gem is spectacularly toned. Peach-orange dominates patina the central obverse, while ice-blue appears over the central reverse. The outer regions on both sides exhibit splashes of magenta, violet, and cobalt-blue color.
