    Seldom-Seen Gem 1855 Three Cent Silver

    1855 3CS MS65 NGC. Type Two three cent silver pieces (1854-1858) are by far the most challenging type of the series. The 1855 is a low mintage issue also with only 139,000 pieces produced. This is a lustrous Gem that shows pale blue toning on the obverse with a golden-rose coloration over the reverse. Fully struck, and quite unusual as such, light die clashing is seen on each side, a common occurrence on three cent silver pieces. Population: 9 in 65, 5 finer (3/04).
    From the Robert Bowling Collection. (#3671) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22Z4, PCGS# 3671)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
