    1870 Three Cent Silver in Copper
    Judd-799, PR67 Brown

    1870 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-799, Pollock-886, Low R.7, PR67 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse design, attributed to William Barber, features a seated figure of Liberty facing left and supporting a shield in her right hand, an olive branch in her left. A free-standing liberty pole is present behind the shield. Combined with a standard three cent silver reverse die. Struck in copper with a reeded edge. Six variants were struck of this pattern: silver, copper, and aluminum, both reeded and plain edge. Many times plain edge patterns are scarcer than those with a reeded edge. However, in this case both are equally scarce with less than a dozen examples known of each. Rich cobalt-blue covers the obverse, while the reverse tends more toward lavender with blue peripheral accents. This is the single numerically finest Judd-799 at PCGS (7/21).
