    Intriguing 1863 Three Cent Pattern
    Judd-319, PR65 Brown

    1863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319, Pollock-384, R.5, PR65 Brown NGC. The obverse is similar to the Braided Hair large cent design that the Mint discontinued in 1857, only with the substitution of a 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 either bronze or copper with a plain edge. This is a razor-sharp Gem with red-brown patina that yields to emerald-green accents around the devices. Census: 1 in 65 Brown, 1 finer (6/09).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29EX, PCGS# 60476)
