    1872 Three Cent Silver in Aluminum
    Judd-1188, PR65 Deep Cameo

    1872 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-1188, Pollock-1328, R.8, PR65 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Each side features the regular dies for a Type Three three cent silver, but struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Two or three Judd-1188 representatives are believed to exist. They were almost certainly made for sale to collectors rather than as production trial pieces. Mint officials were not specifically authorized to manufacture these numismatic delicacies for those purposes, but they did so for decades to satisfy well-connected insiders. This PR65 Deep Cameo example, last offered publicly 15 years ago, is deeply mirrored with a few trivial flecks of carbon on the reverse. A finer specimen is not likely to survive.
    Ex: Western Hills Collection / Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2005), lot 7433.
