    1869 Three Cent Nickel in Nickel, PR65
    Rare Judd-676, Pollock-755 Variety

    1869 3CN Three Cent Nickel, Judd-676, Pollock-755, R.4, PR65 PCGS. Similar to the contemporary three cent nickel, except the date is larger and the denomination pillars are smooth. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. This is the second example of this rare variety we have offered recently. The last one was the Denali Collection example in the 2011 FUN auction. It is characterized by long reverse dentils and a short-tipped left ribbon. Bright surfaces are moderately reflective and show slight granularity and softness of high-point detail from the hardness of the nickel composition. (NGC ID# 29PV, PCGS# 60901)
