    1866 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    Lightly Toned, Frosted Luster

    1866 3CS MS67 PCGS. The mintage of 22,000 pieces is deceptively large when compared to other Type Three issues, but series specialists know that 1866 three cent silver pieces are scarce-to-rare in all grades. This Superb Gem shows recutting on both 6s (Flynn RPD-001) as well as strong die clashing, especially on the reverse. The obverse die is lapped and cracked. Frosted mint luster glows from silver-gray surfaces with hints of lilac present. The motifs are sharply defined. Population: 11 in 67 (2 in 67+), 2 finer (2/18).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22NK, PCGS# 3686)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
