    1855 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    Razor Sharp, The Sole Finest Known

    1855 3CS MS67 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1855 three cent silver is the scarcest Type Two issue in the series in high grade, boasting a mintage of only 139,000 coins. Examples grading finer than MS64 are universally rare, especially as fine as MS66. This MS67 coin is the sole finest 1855 three cent piece known. It is struck from clashed dies as usual, but the design definition is razor-sharp throughout, and frosty mint luster abounds on each side with no mentionable abrasions. Traces of light champagne toning accent the otherwise brilliant surfaces, and eye appeal is outstanding. An exception Registry coin. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (4/20).
