    1870 Three Dollar in Nickel
    Unique Judd-1031, PR63+

    1870 $3 Three Dollars, Judd-1031, Pollock-1166, R.8, PR63+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Each side displays the regular three dollar design for the year 1870. Struck in nickel with a reeded edge. Unlike its counterparts in copper and aluminum, of which about a half dozen and three pieces are known, respectively, this nickel pattern is believed to be unique. As far as we can tell, this is only the third time it has been offered publicly since 1977. Nickel-gray surfaces exhibit a hint of golden color. The surfaces exhibit considerable planchet roughness and a few scattered spots.
