    1870 Three Cent Silver in Aluminum
    Judd-803, PR65 Cameo

    1870 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-803, Pollock-890, High R.7, PR65 Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Traditionally considered a regular dies trial strike; instead, these pieces were actually produced for sale to collectors as part of complete off-metal sets. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Examples were struck in copper, aluminum, and nickel. All are rare. Only two or three aluminum specimens are believed known. The aluminum exhibits deep mirroring in the fields that sets up the cameo contrast for the frosted devices.
