    Satiny Superb Gem 1852 Three Cent Silver

    1852 3CS MS67 PCGS. CAC. The second-year trime issue of 1852 was overwhelmingly the largest of the series at 18.6 million pieces, an effort by the Mint to compensate for disappearing 90% silver coinage (caused by the silver price increase relative to abundant gold from California) with this subsidiary 75% silver denomination. As the pieces were not worth melting, it appears as though many actually circulated to some degree. The Superb Gem level is the practical roadblock for most collectors. This example boasts satiny, well-struck pinkish-rose surfaces that show essentially no contact.
