    Description

    1864 Silver Trime, MS68
    One of the Finest Certified
    Low-Mintage Civil War Issue

    1864 3CS MS68 PCGS Secure. The mintage of silver three cent pieces was limited to 12,000 pieces in 1864, probably because of Civil War hoarding. The date is rare in all grades today and very rare at the Superb Gem level. Currently, PCGS has graded six specimens in MS68, with none finer; while NGC has certified another six Superb Gems, with none finer (7/10).
    The present coin is a magnificent Superb Gem, with spectacular iridescent toning. Delightful shades of blue, lavender, and green intermingle on the obverse, while the reverse retains much original brilliance in the center, yielding to the same lovely play of colors at the rims. The striking details are razor-sharp, and the surfaces are virtually pristine.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 22ZE, PCGS# 3684)

    I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
