    1863 Mature Head Three Cent in Bronze
    Judd-319 Original, PR66 Brown

    1863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319 Original, Pollock-384, R.5, PR66 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is similar to the Mature Head large cent design discontinued in 1857, only with the substitution of a curved and markedly smaller date. The reverse displays 3 CENTS in the center surrounded by a laurel wreath with UNITED STATES OF AMERICA about the border. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. This is one of the more interesting patterns created by the Mint. Fortunately 50-60 pieces are known in bronze. The sides are well balanced with equal amounts of rich blue-brown and faint remnants of original red luster clinging to the outer devices. Nicely mirrored and sharply struck throughout.
