    1868 Three Cent Nickel, Struck in Nickel
    Judd-615, PR67 Deep Cameo
    Large Diameter Impression

    1868 P3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-615, Pollock-680, R.5, PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is struck from the adopted three cent nickel dies, while on the reverse the Roman numeral III has a smooth surface and is surrounded by a wreath of corn, cotton, wheat, and tobacco. The obverse is set on a cent-sized planchet, leaving that side with extra wide borders, but the reverse looks normal. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. A gorgeous Superb Gem Deep Cameo proof, this piece exhibits stunning gold, violet, and blue toning over its deeply mirrored fields and sharply defined, highly lustrous devices. Although PCGS has certified 26 examples of Judd-615, this piece is the only one with Deep Cameo contrast (4/20). A prize for the collector.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29N7, PCGS# 960827)
