    1885 Three Cent Nickel, MS62
    Lowest Mintage of the Series

    1885 3CN MS62 NGC. One of the big keys to the series, the 1885 three cent nickel had a low mintage of only 1,000 coins, and is a rarity in Mint State. This piece is well-struck and the surfaces are remarkably clean for the grade. Dusky pewter-gray toning slightly mutes the luster, likely contributing NGC's assessment. Census: 2 in 62, 23 finer (12/14).(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 275G, PCGS# 3753)

    Weight: 1.94 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel
