    Elusive and Attractive 1857 Proof Three Cent Silver

    1857 3CS PR 62 PCGS. A scarce and seldom offered issue, the proof 1857 three cent piece was produced before the Philadelphia Mint instituted widespread sales of specimen strikings to collectors. Writing in 1977, Breen traced the pedigree of 12 examples, but he also believed that a few other pieces probably survived. This is an exceptionally attractive coin for the grade. Both sides are uncommonly well defined for the series. The surfaces are remarkably hairline-free with smoky tan-gold patina and bright underlying reflectivity. A coin that seems undergraded at the MS 62 level. (NGC ID# 27C4, PCGS# 3704)
