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

    1877 3CN PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. This Premium Gem Cameo three cent nickel proof appears all-brilliant at first, but closer inspection brings out faint wisps of champagne-gold color that confirm the originality of each side. The fields are deeply mirrored and the motifs thickly frosted, delivering bold contrast. A great example of the famous proof-only key date. Population: 68 in 66 (4 in 66+) Cameo, 15 finer. CAC: 43 in 66, 16 finer (6/17).(Registry values: N2998)
