    1869 Three Cent Nickel in Copper
    Judd-678, PR66 Red and Brown

    1869 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-678, Pollock-757, R.7, PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Struck from the regular issue three cent nickel dies, but in copper instead of the usual copper-nickel alloy. Most likely, this pattern was struck not as a regular dies trial, but was instead produced with the intention of sale to privileged dealers or collectors as part of a set of off-metal sets. About a half-dozen are known in copper with a similar number extant in aluminum. Rich reddish-coppery color is seen over each side with an occasional dab of blue interspersed. Sharply detailed, except on the first numeral of the denomination, as usual.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29PW, PCGS# 70903)
