    Description

    1883 3CN MS62 NGC. With a scant mintage of only 4,000 coins, the 1883 three cent nickel is many times rarer in business strike format, than in proof. The present survivor exhibits sharp detail and surprisingly few surface faults, given the grade. Essentially untoned, with just a tint of light golden over silver-gray luster. Census: 4 in 62, 19 finer (2/14).
    From The Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: N991)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 275E, PCGS# 3751)

    Weight: 1.94 grams
