    1877 Three Cent Nickel, PR67 Cameo
    Proof-Only Key Issue

    1877 3CN PR67 Cameo NGC. While the proof-only mintages of both the 1877 and 1878 three cent nickels were generally saved and well-preserved, the 1877 is scarcer by a ratio of nearly 1 to 2 when compared to the higher-mintage 1878. In Superb Gem Cameo format, the 1877 is rare in both an absolute and conditional sense (not to mention by demand). This contrasted, nearly untoned example displays steel-silver color with a faint hint of lilac on the frosted devices. Smooth-mirrored fields surround the sharply struck motifs. Census: 25 in 67 Cameo (1 in 67+, 5 in 67 , 1 in 67+ ), 3 finer (9/19).(Registry values: N4719)

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

    Weight: 1.94 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
