1864 Three Cent Silver in Copper
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.
