    1863 Three Cents in Copper
    Judd-319 Restrike, PR65 Red

    1863 3C Three Cents, Judd-319 Restrike, Pollock-384, R.5, PR65 Red PCGS. The obverse is similar to the Braided Hair large cent design that was discontinued seven years earlier, only with much smaller digits in the date. The reverse has a design similar to the issued 1864 two cent piece, but the wreath is smaller and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is larger. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. Approximately 50 to 60 pieces are believed extant of this experimental striking. According to USPatterns.com "Full red examples are extremely rare." This is one such example. The surfaces are even red over both sides. Fully struck. Population: 1 in 65 Red, 0 finer (8/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 80476)
