    Description

    1863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319, Pollock-384, R.5-6, PR 64 Brown PCGS. The obverse is similar to the Braided Hair large cent design that the Mint discontinued in 1857, only with the substitution of a markedly smaller date. The reverse displays 3 CENTS in the center surrounded by a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA about the border. Struck in either bronze or copper with a plain edge. While the reverse displays undertones of crimson coloration throughout, the obverse exhibits a modest honey-golden cast. Crisply struck and smooth, a small dark spot behind Liberty's nose seems to preclude a full gem designation. (NGC ID# 29EX, PCGS# 60476)
