    1852 Three Cent Silver, MS67
    Top-Grade CAC Coin
    Registry Set Potential

    1852 3CS MS67 PCGS. CAC. The Type One three cent silver piece was only struck for three years, from 1851 to 1853. The 1852 is arguably the most plentiful of these in high grade, making it the ideal type coin for quality-conscious collectors. This Superb Gem example is among the finest pieces typically available, and it is conditionally scarce as such. It is also among the finest pieces with CAC recognition. Luster is frosty and unabraded, complementing attractive gold, green, lilac, and russet toning on each side. The slightest strike softness is visible at the center of the shield. Population: 31 in 67 (2 in 67+), 2 finer. CAC: 13 in 67, 0 finer (2/20).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22YZ, PCGS# 3666)

    Weight: 0.80 grams

    Metal: 75% Silver, 25% Copper
