1872 Three Cent Silver, MS67+
1872 3CS MS67+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Just 1,000
circulation-strike three cent silver pieces were produced in 1872,
with a proof mintage approaching that number at 950 coins. While
the proofs are frequently encountered, few of the circulation
strikes survive, and they are rarely equal to this piece that is
tied with just two others for the finest certified. NGC has never
examined an MS67 or better example. This piece is amazing,
featuring a bold strike with frosty devices and satiny fields,
exhibiting noticeable contrast. Both sides are brilliant with
delicate gold toning. This beauty will be a centerpiece in a
high-grade collection. Population: 3 in 67 (2 in 67+), 0 finer
