    1853 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    Among the Finest Certified

    1853 3CS MS67 NGC. CAC. An important coin for the type collector, this thickly frosted Type One three cent exhibits delicate powder-blue iridescence over both sides with hints of lilac and champagne intermixed. The strike is bold for the issue, and the preservation is outstanding.

    Population Data (3/15): This MS67 piece is among the 10 finest at NGC and eight in this numeric grade at PCGS. There are none finer at either service.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1853 three cent silver was the final issue in the series with an eight-figure mintage (11.4 million coins). However, attrition took its toll on would-be survivors, and today the issue is rare in Superb Gem condition. Moreover, strike quality was anything but memorable; finding a well-struck piece will prove a challenge at any Mint State level.

    Provenance: Philadelphia Signature (Heritage, 8/2000), lot 6743.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22Z2, PCGS# 3667)

    Weight: 0.80 grams
