    1864 Three Cent Silver in Copper
    Judd-375, PR66 Red

    1864 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-375, Pollock-443, Low R.7, PR66 Red PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular three cent silver dies for the year. Struck in copper with a plain edge. It would be misleading to describe this as a dies trial. It is better-described an off-metal production probably produced around 1869-1870 for inclusion in sets alongside IN GOD WE TRUST quarters, half dollars, and dollars, per USPatterns.com. Saul Teichman cites about a dozen known, half of which are ex: Edgar Adams. Those coins were sold in consecutive lots in an April 1935 Thomas Elder sale. While the provenance of this piece is uncertain beyond its inclusion in the Bob Simpson Collection, it survives in immaculate Premium Gem condition with luminous copper-gold color. Faded violet accents are present on each side.
