    Description

    1867 Three Cent Silver, MS66 (Gold CAC)
    Near-Perfect Surfaces, Nicely Toned
    Only 4,000 Pieces Struck

    1867 3CS MS66 PCGS. Gold CAC. Each side appears to be flawlessly preserved. The mint luster glows strongly beneath toning that is generally golden-rose in the centers with blue margins (but some variations exist). The strike details are complete on the obverse, and one has to look closely at the reverse to locate any softness of high point detail. Struck from unclashed dies.

    Population Data (7/14): Only three MS66 coins have been certified by PCGS with one finer -- this is the only Gold CAC 1867 in any grade of this date -- and only one PCGS coin has been certified finer. NGC has only certified two pieces in MS66.

    Heritage Commentary: A mere 4,000 business strikes were produced in 1867, plus 625 proofs. So few pieces were struck, this date is seldom located in circulated grades. It is also extremely elusive at the upper end of Mint State. The vast majority of known examples are clustered in the MS62 to MS64 grade range.

    Provenance:
    Purchased from Jason Carter (5/2010).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22ZH, PCGS# 3687)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
