    1863 Three Cent Silver in Aluminum, Judd-322

    1863 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-322, Pollock-387, High R.7, PR66 Deep Cameo 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. The obverse is this high quality specimen is heavily striated and, while similarly reflective, the reverse lacks this feature. A bit of striking softness is noted along the left side of both obverse and reverse.
