    1872 Silver Three Cent, MS67
    Condition Census-Quality
    Beautifully Toned

    1872 3CS MS67 PCGS. The key 1872 is the final circulation-strike issue in the silver three cent series, boasting an incredibly low mintage of only 1,000 coins. The date is one of the scarcest in the series overall, and most high-grade examples seen are of the much more available proof variant; true circulation strikes are rare in the finer Uncirculated grade range. This Superb Gem is among the finest seen at PCGS, and is rivaled numerically only by a single Prooflike MS67 coin at NGC. The fields are deeply reflective when tilted beneath a light, although a touch of striking softness on the central shield confirms the circulation strike origins of the coin. Both sides show vivid ocean-blue, violet, and amber toning in the margins, with lighter champagne hues in the centers. The eye appeal is outstanding. Population: 3 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (6/15).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 22ZN, PCGS# 3693)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
