1861 Three Cent Silver, MS67
1861 3CS MS67 PCGS. CAC. At first glance, this Superb Gem
appears almost brilliant. Closer examination, however, reveals
subtle pale blue interiors surrounded by much more noticeable, yet
still light golden peripheral color. The strike details on the
obverse are complete. The reverse is nearly so, save for slight
weakness on the leaves above the Roman numeral and fletchings
below. Supremely lustrous surfaces are uninterrupted by the
abrasions normally seen. The obverse is strongly die clashed, the
reverse less so.
Type Three Issue With Intense Mint Luster
Population Data (7/14): A surprising 29 pieces have been certified by PCGS, but none are finer, leading one to question the number of resubmissions that may be included. A similar number have been graded by NGC.
Heritage Commentary: It is difficult to term any three cent silver "common," but the 1861 is seen with greater frequency than other dates from the 1850s and 1860s. This makes it a leading contender for the most sought-after type coin in the series.

Weight: 0.75 grams
