    PR66 Cameo Judd-1186 Aluminum
    1872 Three Cent Nickel

    1872 P3C Judd-1186, Pollock-1326, High R.7 PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Denali Collection. The regular dies of the 1872 three cent nickel. Struck in aluminum with a reeded edge. Like the Judd-1185, this pattern uses regular dies and an off-metal planchet; unlike the Judd-1185, which plausibly could have been a trial for a bronze three cent coin, the aluminum Judd-1186 was a nonsensical choice for a replacement metal, and so those pieces almost certainly were struck as delicacies. Indeed, the eye appeal is delicate on this Premium Gem specimen, faintly blue-tinted where not aluminum-white from frost. Great contrast and eye appeal.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
