    1853 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    Top-Graded Type Coin

    1853 3CS MS67 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The third year of three sent silver production witnessed 11.4 million coins struck, which stands as the second highest mintage in the entire series and makes the 1853 a perfect issue to represent the type. This is a top-graded Superb Gem with blushes of olive and almond-gold patina that lightly blanket the frosted surfaces. Pastel blue and lavender hues also appear on the reverse. Each side exhibits a touch of softness around the borders, and a hint of incompleteness occurs on the middle shield lines. Other than that, this Superb Gem is practically pristine. Population: 27 in 67 (4 in 67+), 0 finer (7/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22Z2, PCGS# 3667)
