    1871 Three Cent Silver in Aluminum
    Judd-1049, PR64 Cameo

    1871 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-1049, Pollock-1183, R.8, PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue design for the 1871 three cent silver, but struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Although the latest edition of Judd (2009) cites a population of one, suggests two or three pieces are believed to exist. Both sources designate this pattern as R.8. Judd-1049 has been called a die trial issue, but the coins may instead have been deliberately struck for sale to collectors.

    Both sides are smooth and frosty, showing slender die striations in the field and a small die line running diagonally through the upper left vertical shield stripes. Cameo contrast is readily appealing.
    Ex: Casterline and Hall Collections Sale (Superior, 5/1989), lot 1061; The Lemus Collection, Queller Family Collection Part Two (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 1788.
