    1855 Three Cent Silver, MS66
    Vibrant Luster, Vivid Toning

    1855 3CS MS66 PCGS. CAC. This better date is seen here in exceptionally attractive, high-grade condition. The fields are bright and shimmer with intense, semiprooflike intensity. This is noteworthy on this coin, not only because of the brightness of the lustrous flash, but also because of the deep blue, rose, and charcoal-gray patina splashed across each side. Such deep coloration would greatly subdue less-lustrous coins, but here it does not have a dampening effect. The surfaces are die clashed, as always, yet free from any troubling abrasions. A bit of softness appears around the peripheries, the closest we can find to a defect. Population: 8 in 66, 1 finer (6/15).
