    1849 Three Cent Silver Pattern
    Judd-112, PR64

    1849 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-112 Original, Pollock-126, Low R.7, PR64 NGC. The obverse die is of the Seated Liberty half dime, while the reverse bears the Roman numeral III with no other legends. A "coin without a country," struck in a 60:40 silver:copper alloy with a reeded edge. Save for a couple of unique and unusual pieces listed in Judd for 1840 and 1846, the 1849 three cent patterns in their several varieties are the first U.S. pattern coins struck since 1839 -- or, to put it more precisely, bearing a date after 1839. The pinkish-gray, well-struck surfaces on both sides are appealing, despite some minor field chatter and planchet laminations that are almost exclusively seen on the reverse.
