    1851 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    Among the Finest Certified

    1851 3CS MS67 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The overall availability of the 1851 three cent silver piece and its status as the first issue of the series make it popular with type collectors. Nonetheless, examples are seldom offered in Superb Gem condition, and none are certified finer than the Simpson coin. There is trivial strike softness in the central shield, but the dies are unlapped, and the frosty luster is beautifully preserved. Golden toning blankets each side. Population: 29 in 67 (5 in 67+), 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22YX, PCGS# 3664)

    Weight: 0.80 grams

    Metal: 75% Silver, 25% Copper
