1849 Three Cent Pattern in Silver
1849 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-111 Original, Pollock-125, Low
R.7, PR63 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the regular
design of the 1849 Seated Liberty half dime. The date is repunched
and appears to match 1849 Valentine-8. The reverse has a large 3 in
a plain field with a dentilated border. Struck in silver with a
reeded edge. This is only the third appearance of Judd-111 in our
auctions, representing just two different coins. This is the only
example that PCGS has designated as a Cameo proof from a total
population of four PCGS certified coins (4/20). This brilliant
example has light silver surfaces with nicely mirrored fields and
wisps of pale blue toning.
