    1872 Three Cent Silver in Copper
    Judd-1187, PR67 Brown

    1872 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-1187, Pollock-1327, High R.7, PR67 Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The regular-issue three cent silver dies. Struck in copper with a plain edge. These patterns were produced for inclusion in complete off-metal sets for the year, which were sold to collectors. estimates fewer than half a dozen pieces exist in copper, plus two or three in aluminum. This appears to be the first example we have handled since we established our Permanent Auction Archive in 1993. These are rare patterns; so, too, are opportunities to obtain them. This flashy Superb Gem proof is brown with gorgeous blue and violet patina. Splashes of magenta and copper-orange color appear around the devices.
