    1883 Three Cent Nickel, MS67
    Tied for Finest Known

    1883 3CN MS67 PCGS. CAC. When the three cent nickel series was introduced in 1865, the general public was still hoarding silver coins -- a habit that began during the Civil War and would continue through 1876. The highest denomination in circulation at that time was the two cent piece. However, by 1883 silver coins were once again in circulation and the three cent nickel denomination was unnecessary. The result, of course, was mintages for business strikes dropped. The 1883 has the third lowest mintage for the denomination with a paltry 4,000 coins struck for circulation. This is an attractive, sharply struck example whose lustrous surfaces show just the slightest trace of golden patina. Population: 7 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer. CAC: 5 in 67, 0 finer (11/20).(Registry values: N4719)
