    1869 Three Cent Nickel, Judd-679
    PR67 ★ Ultra Cameo
    Ex: Newman, Aluminum

    1869 3CN 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. Other denominations from 1869 were also struck in aluminum in limited quantities, to assemble off-metal proof sets for presentation to luminaries. The present Superb Gem is a magnificent specimen that boasts frosty motifs and flashy fields. Perfect aside from a trace of struck-in grease (as made) near the first denominational column.
    Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society; Eric P. Newman Collection, Part I (Heritage, 4/2013), lot 3970, which realized $12,337.50.
