    1869 Three Cent Nickel in Aluminum
    Judd-679, PR67 ★ Ultra Cameo
    The Finest Known Example

    1869 3C Three Cent Nickel, Judd-679, Pollock-758, High R.7, PR67 ★ Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. Struck from dies of the regular design in aluminum, instead of the usual copper-nickel alloy, with a plain edge. This example and another certified PR64 are the only two that NGC has examined. PCGS has seen five, including one certified PR66 Deep Cameo. The Newman example is the finest known Judd-679.

    This is a stunning Superb Gem. Brilliant light gray surfaces with deeply mirrored fields nicely frame the frosty and highly lustrous devices, enhancing their bold design definition. Myriad die polishing lines are noted on both sides.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
