    1882 Three Cent Nickel, PR68
    None Finer at PCGS

    1882 3CN PR68 PCGS. Margins of golden-yellow surround pale lavender-pink interiors on this sumptuous Superb Gem proof late-date three cent nickel, struck to the extent of only 3,100 proofs complementing a meager business-strike emission of 22,200 coins.

Population: 7 in 68, 0 finer (12/14).(Registry values: N2998)
