    Outstanding Superb Gem 1851 Three Cent Silver

    1851 3CS MS67 PCGS. An outstanding example of this very popular type coin. Frosty and essentially brilliant, with a few toning freckles near the peripheries, and a small window of prooflikeness on the lower left obverse (as struck, due to heavy die polishing). Noticeable clash marking is evident on the reverse (as struck), with an outline of the obverse star over the central reverse. The flashy, highly lustrous surfaces are seemingly mark-free. No example has been certified at a higher grade level by either NGC or PCGS. Population: 6 in 67, 0 finer (4/03). (NGC ID# 22YX, PCGS# 3664)

    Weight: 0.80 grams

    Metal: 75% Silver, 25% Copper
