    1863 Three Cent Silver in Aluminum
    Judd-322, PR65 Deep Cameo

    1863 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-322, Pollock-387, High R.7, PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Often erroneously described as dies trials, these are actually restrikes made for collectors, likely during the early 1870s. Each side features the regular three cent silver design for the year. However, the hub from which they were made had the D in UNITED broken and may be a backdated novodel. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. This is one of at least three confirmed Judd-322 examples. The obverse of this Deep Cameo Gem proof is heavily striated, while the similarly reflective reverse lacks this feature. A bit of strike softness is noted along the left side of both obverse and reverse.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2004), lot 6418; Western Hills Collection / Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2005), lot 7371.
