1870 Three Cent Silver, MS66
1870 3CS MS66 NGC. A sharply struck and attractive example
with rich olive, lilac, and iridescent toning. Both sides show
typical grade-consistent marks of little consequence. Reflective
fields add to the eye appeal.
Population Data (7/14): NGC has certified five 1870 three cent silver pieces in MS66 and one in MS66 Prooflike. None are graded at higher levels. PCGS has certified 10 in MS66 and one in MS67.
Heritage Commentary: A mere 3,000 business strikes were minted as this denomination, with its strong beginning in the early 1850s, slowly fizzled out, the denomination no longer necessary with the introduction of the nickel three cent piece five years earlier.
