    1865 Three Cent Nickel in Oroide
    Judd-414, PR63

    1865 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-414, Pollock-485, High R.7, PR63 PCGS. Struck from plain edge regular issue dies, but in oroide alloy. Oroide is a brass alloy that has a pale gold color. This is an extremely rare pattern with only four examples certified by the combined forces of NGC and PCGS (3/18). Each side is bright with a few scattered contact marks. There is evidence of die clashing in the obverse fields, but we do not see clash marks in the reverse fields.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
