    1852 Silver Three Cent, MS68
    The Sole Finest Type One at NGC

    1852 3CS MS68 NGC. An intriguing, perhaps underappreciated collecting venture is to assemble the three-coin silver three cent type set in Superb Gem condition. This is easily accomplished in MS67, but the rarity of the types -- and by extension the intrigue of the challenge -- multiplies exponentially in MS68. For the entire series, NGC records just 23 coins in MS68 or MS68 Prooflike and PCGS just 16. The vast majority of these are in the late-series issues that comprise the Type Three design. For the Type Two variety, a single 1854 PCGS coin breaks the MS68 grade barrier, and for the Type One there are but three MS68 coins: two 1852s at PCGS and this single 1852 MS68 piece at NGC (11/15). The surfaces yield frosty, silver-lilac and champagne hues with jewel-like luster and tremendous eye appeal. A high Condition Census Type One coin and among the finest three cent silvers known.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 22YZ, PCGS# 3666)

    Weight: 0.80 grams

    Metal: 75% Silver, 25% Copper
