1860 Three Cent Silver, PR66
1860 3CS PR66 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1860 three cent silver
business strike is scarcer in high grade than later Type Three
issues, adding date pressure on the proof issue. However, the proof
coin is also scarcer in high grade than many later proofs. This is
a recipe for high demand and strong prices when a proof 1860 coin
comes up for auction. The present example is within the Condition
Census for the issue. PCGS has seen only three other 1860 proofs in
this grade, with a single coin finer (4/20). Rainbow toning and
reflective fields produce strong eye appeal, and a touch of the
usual strike softness on the central shield and the olive branch
hardly detracts. Population: 4 in 66, 1 finer (4/20).
Richly Toned, Condition Census Proof
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27C7, PCGS# 3709)
Weight: 0.75 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
