    MS66 PCGS 1855 Three Cent Silver Rarity

    1855 3CS MS66 PCGS. Three Cent Silvers of the Type Two design are the most conditionally challenging issues in the series. Coins of this type were produced from 1854 through 1858, and the 1855 boasts the lowest mintage of this era at 139,000 pieces. Easily qualifying for Condition Census standing, the surfaces of this golden tinged Gem are silky smooth with rippling mint luster. The strike is a little soft in select peripheral areas, but the centers are sharp, and all major features are readily evident. NGC and PCGS combined have seen only nine coins in MS66 and none finer (1/03).
