    1870 Three Cent Silver, PR66
    Judd-796, Struck in Silver

    1870 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-796, Pollock-883, High R.7, PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is William Barber's Seated Liberty design. Liberty faces left, with her right hand supporting a shield and holding a ribbon reading LIBERTY. She bears an olive branch in her left hand, and a Liberty cap protrudes from behind. UNITED STATES is to the left, and OF AMERICA to the right. The date 1870 is in exergue. On the reverse, somewhat mismatched in size, is the regular-issue reverse for the three cent silver. Struck in silver with a plain edge. USPatterns.com suggests fewer than a dozen examples extant, but we believe that total may be even smaller, perhaps four to six pieces. This Premium Gem features bright, reflective fields and deep rose centers that turn blue around the margins.
    Ex: Frank M. Stirling Collection / Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 1417.
