    Colorful Gem Proof 1855 Three Cent Silver
    Distinct, Unacknowledged Contrast

    1855 3CS PR65 NGC. The 1855 three cent silver proof, never distributed in large quantities, today is a rarity regardless of grade with only 50 or so surviving specimens estimated. In a broader sense, as a representative of the Type Two design in proof, it is also a category rarity as well. This is a gorgeous Gem representative, boldly reflective and semicontrasted under orange, gold, green, and blue patina. All-around eye appeal is magnificent. This PR65 specimen is housed in an early-generation holder with external hologram, which helps explain the lack of consideration for a Cameo designation in the contemporary sense. Census: 9 in 65, 5 finer (11/12).
    From The Walter Freeman Collection of Three Cent Silvers.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 27C2, PCGS# 3702)
