    Description

    Superb Uncirculated 1879 Three Cent Nickel

    1879 3CN MS67 PCGS. Intricately detailed with striated, semi-reflective fields and the barest trace of olive-gold patina. A tiny fleck of carbon between UNITED and STATES serves more as an identifier than a distraction. The limited mintage 1879, one of a mere 38,000 business strikes produced, is far more challenging than its proof counterpart. Population: 8 in 67, 0 finer (1/05).
    From the Bruce Scher #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.(#3747) (Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 275B, PCGS# 3747)

    Weight: 1.94 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
