    1850 Three Cent Silver in Silver
    Judd-125 Original, PR64+
    Popular Cap and Rays Design

    1850 P3CS Three Cent Silver, Judd-125 Original, Pollock-147, R.4, PR64+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A Liberty cap inscribed LIBERTY is surrounded by a glory of rays on the obverse, with the date, 1850, below. The reverse features a Roman number III inside a palm wreath with the statutory legend, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, around. Struck in silver with a plain edge. This highly popular design borrows Christian Gobrecht's cap and rays design for the 1836 pattern gold dollar. This Choice proof exhibits a sharp strike and dappled iridescent toning. The three cent silver patterns anticipated the coinage that began the following year. Population: 16 in 64 (2 in 64+), 3 finer. CAC: 8 in 64, 1 finer (1/21).
