    1863 Aluminum Three Cent Piece
    Judd-322, PR63

    1863 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-322, Pollock-387, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. Although described in the literature as "regular dies trial pieces," these are actually restrikes made in the early 1870s and sold as part of complete off-metal sets with the silver coinage of this year containing quarter, half dollar, and dollar which had the reverses of 1866 with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST above the eagle. These three cent dies were made from a hub which had the D in UNITED broken and may be a backdated novodel. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Moderately reflective, the slightly streaky surfaces are unoxidized and appealing, especially for the grade.
    Ex: Baltimore Signature (Heritage, 7/2003), lot 9955.
