    1868 Three Cent Nickel in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-615A, PR64
    Thick Planchet Variant

    1868 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-615A, Pollock-681, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. The obverse is struck from the adopted three cent nickel dies, while on the reverse the Roman numeral III is smooth and is surrounded by an agricultural wreath. The obverse is set on a cent-sized planchet, leaving that side with extra wide borders, but the reverse looks normal. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. Saul leaves open the possibility that rather than copper-nickel, these pieces may be struck in oroide. To our knowledge, none have undergone metallurgical testing. Both thick and thin planchets are known; this appears to be a thick planchet piece. Even golden-rose toning covers both sides and the fields are brightly reflective.
