    1879 Three Cent Nickel
    PR67+ Deep Cameo, Only One Graded

    1879 3CN PR67+ Deep Cameo PCGS. This midseries 1879 proof three cent nickel is the sole finest certified example of the issue with the Deep Cameo designation. More surprisingly, it is the only Deep Cameo certified by PCGS in any proof grade. The no-questions deep contrast is created via deeply frosted devices complementing fields that are light gray to white and fully reflective throughout. Some die lapping on the reverse is always seen, and the strike is close to full, save for trifling weakness at the top of two of the three columns in the III denomination. Population: 1 in 67 (1 in 67+) Deep Cameo, 0 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 275Z, PCGS# 93775)

    Weight: 1.94 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
