    1872 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    None Numerically Finer at PCGS

    1872 3CS MS67 PCGS. CAC. The three cent silver denomination was clearly obsolete by 1872, being largely replaced in the channels of commerce by its nickel counterpart. A minuscule mintage of 1,000 business-strike examples was accomplished at the Philadelphia Mint in 1872, the last time the coins were produced in regular-issue format, making the date scarce-to-rare in all grades. After a small proof mintage the following year, the silver three cent piece was cancelled.

    The present coin is a spectacular Superb Gem, one of the finest-certified survivors. The design elements are well-detailed and the surfaces are impeccably preserved. The fields show prooflike reflectivity throughout and the terrific eye appeal is enhanced by attractive shades of golden-brown, cerulean-blue, and lavender toning. Population: 2 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (1/15).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22ZN, PCGS# 3693)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
