    1859 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    Spectacular Multicolor Toning

    1859 3CS MS67 PCGS. The Variety 3 design was introduced on the silver three cent piece in 1859, showing the six-pointed star outlined by a single line instead of the double line of previous years. The reported business-strike mintage was drastically reduced, from 1.6 million pieces the year before to just 364,200 examples in 1859, indicating demand for the denomination was declining in the national economy.

    The present coin is a marvelous Superb Gem with spectacular shades of golden-brown, cerulean-blue, and magenta toning. The obverse design elements are sharply detailed, but a touch of softness shows on some stars and the bundle of arrows on the reverse. The impeccably preserved surfaces radiate vibrant mint luster and eye appeal is terrific. Population: 3 in 67, 1 finer (11/15).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22Z8, PCGS# 3677)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
