    1870 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-799, Pollock-886, Low R.7, PR63 Red and Brown NGC. William Barber is credited with the obverse design, which features a seated figure of Liberty facing left. The right hand holds a shield, and the left hand grasps an olive branch. A free-standing liberty pole and cap rises vertically behind the shield. The reverse die is the regular issue three cent silver design. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Sets were sold in silver, copper, and aluminum with either reeded or plain edges.

A scattering of tiny carbon spots occupy the lower-left margin of the reverse. Fewer than a dozen examples of Judd-799 are known. Census: 1 in 63 Red and Brown, 2 finer (9/21).
