1863 Three Cent Silver in Copper
1863 3C Three Cent Silver, Judd-321, Pollock-386, Low R.7, PR64
Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Traditionally described as a regular
dies trial striking, these pieces were actually restrikes made in
the early 1870s and sold as part of complete off-metal sets. Struck
in copper with a plain edge. Only struck in copper and aluminum.
About a dozen examples are known in copper. Both obverse and
reverse are well-matched in color and intensity of hue, with
gray-blue seen over each side and light reddish undertones apparent
