    1868 Three Cent Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-617A, PR65
    Two Coins Traced

    1868 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-617A, Pollock-686, High R.7, PR65 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the same as the issued three cent nickel, but the Roman numerals on the reverse are smooth instead of ribbed, and the wreath also differs slightly. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. The last example we offered was in November 2012. Although we did not mention it at the time, that coin appears to have been the Winthrop example cited by Pollock and Saul Teichman as the only confirmed Judd-617A. This is an important new offering and an undisputed rarity. Frosty, brilliant surfaces feature a high degree of contrast. Several cracks appear down the left side of the reverse.

    Coin Index Numbers: (PCGS# 60831)
