    1857 Three Cent Silver, MS65+
    Rarely Seen Finer, CAC

    1857 3CS MS65+ NGC. CAC. Despite the substantial mintage of more than 1 million pieces, the 1857 three cent silver piece is an elusive issue in MS65 condition and finer coins are rare. This Plus-graded Gem exhibits well-detailed design elements, with just a touch of softness around the peripheries, and dramatic clash marks on both sides. Attractive shades of pale gold toning enhance the well-preserved surfaces, with vibrant mint luster underneath. Census: 35 in 65 (1 in 65+), 11 finer. CAC: 10 in 65, 10 finer (8/20).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22Z6, PCGS# 3673)
