    1869 Three Cent Silver, MS68
    The Sole Finest Certified

    1869 3CS MS68 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The 1869 three cent silver comes from a mintage of only 4,500 pieces, making survivors elusive in all grades. The issue circulated little, and most extant examples are in Mint State, ranging in grade from MS63 to MS66. The date is rare in Superb Gem condition, and this MS68 example is the sole finest known (9/20). The coin is razor sharp, and the reflective fields display exceptional preservation. Natural, concentric bands of rose-gold, mint-green, peach-yellow, and ocean-blue toning encompass each side, with no distraction contact marks seen. Eye appeal is outstanding on this finest-known Registry coin.(Registry values: N1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22ZK, PCGS# 3689)
