    Colorful MS66 1865 Three Cent Silver

    1865 3CS MS66 PCGS. CAC. Because fractional currency dominated commerce, a scant 8,000 business strike 1865 three cent pieces were produced.

The obverse is prooflike while the reverse has satin luster. Population: 5 in 66, 3 finer (9/08).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22ZF, PCGS# 3685)

    Weight: 0.75 grams
