    Description

    1864 Three Cent Silver, Near-Pristine MS66
    Only 12,000 Coins Minted

    1864 3CS MS66 PCGS. CAC. The shield is well-defined, and only a few of the olive leaves and stars display mild strike softness. Each side is richly toned in olive and violet-gray patina with semiprooflike fields, the surfaces practically pristine save for a few tiny flecks. Bold clash marks occur throughout.

    Population Data (8/15): PCGS lists 18 MS66 (one in MS66+) with 11 finer. There are 18 such at NGC and 13 finer.

    Heritage Commentary: Output of three cent silver coins plunged to just 12,000 pieces in 1864. Choice Uncirculated is the most frequently awarded grade at PCGS and NGC, and Premium Gems such as this are conditionally rare.

    Provenance: W.R. Walling Collection (Stack's, 3/1996), lot 190.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22ZE, PCGS# 3684)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
