    1873 Three Cent Silver in Aluminum
    Judd-1263, PR66 Cameo

    1873 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-1263, Pollock-1405, R.8, PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. Although traditionally described as a regular dies trial striking, these pieces were actually produced for sale to collectors as part of complete sets. Struck in aluminum with a plain edge. Examples were also struck in copper; both metals are rare with three or fewer pieces known of each. The opportunity to acquire any of these off-metal strikes is rare. In fact, we do cannot find evidence of our offering an aluminum variant since at least 1993. The Cameo designation is well deserved and is created by the strong contrast seen between the frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields. Brilliant throughout with no traces of oxidation.
