    1877 Three Cent Nickel, PR66 Cameo
    Exceptional Surface Preservation

    1877 3CN PR66 Cameo PCGS. RPD-001. The date is mildly repunched north, with the doubling most noticeable on the bottom of the 1 and 8. The 1877 three cent nickel is a proof-only issue with a recorded mintage of only 900 pieces. This Premium Gem example has a pleasing degree of field-motif contrast, but the true hallmark of the coin would have to be its incredibly clean surfaces, which are virtually void of even minute flaws. The devices are well-struck, and light golden patina graces each side. Population: 41 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 9 finer (7/14).(Registry values: N2998)

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

    Weight: 1.94 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
