    1877 Three Cent Nickel, PR66 Cameo
    Key, Proof-Only Issue

    1877 3CN PR66 Cameo NGC. With an original mintage of only 510 pieces, all of which were proofs, the 1877 is one of the two stars in the three cent nickel series, only sharing the spotlight with the 1865 proof. This is an all-brilliant example that has moderately mirrored fields with a strong presence of mint frost on the devices. Exceptional technical preservation as well as eye appeal. Census: 66 in 66 Cameo (6 in 66+, 5 in 66 ), 28 finer (7/19).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2005), lot 1410.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II. (Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 275X, PCGS# 83773)

    Weight: 1.94 grams
