    1870 Three Cent Silver in Silver
    Judd-797, PR65 Cameo

    1870 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-797, Pollock-884, Low R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. A seated Liberty faces left while supporting a shield with a scroll inscribed LIBERTY on her right side and holding an olive branch in her left hand. A crudely fashioned cap atop a pole awkwardly looms in the background. UNITED STATES / OF AMERICA occupies the periphery with the date, 1870, in exergue. The reverse features the regular three cent silver design. The smaller-diameter reverse die accounts for the abnormally large border on that side. Struck in silver with a reeded edge. writes, "less than a dozen known many of which appear to have been struck on half dime planchets as opposed to trime planchets." This Gem remains largely untoned, enhancing field-device contrast. Just a few translucent blushes of violet patina reside over each side.
