    Prized 1884 Three Cent Nickel, MS64
    Mintage 1,700 Business Strikes

    1884 3CN MS64 PCGS. The 1884 and 1885 three cent nickels have in common that they are the two lowest-mintage business strikes in the entire three cent nickel series, among the only ones that had more proofs struck than circulation coins. The 1883 falls into this same category, but the 1884 and 1885 had only 1,700 and 1,000 business strikes made, compared to 4,000 of the 1883. Even well-circulated three cent nickels from 1882 to 1885 are prized finds. This near-Gem 1884 is certified in a first-generation small holder, showing even slate-gray surfaces. The strike is bold despite the hardness of nickel, and a few microscopic toning flecks are of no consequence. A coin seldom seen at any grade level. Population: 3 in 64, 6 finer (6/11).
