    1863/2 Three Cent Silver, PR66 Cameo
    Unusual Proof Overdate

    1863/2 3CS PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. In the entire field of American numismatics, there are only a handful of overdates that were struck in proof format. One of those is the 1863/2 three cent silver piece that is offered in this lot. The entire date shows evidence of doubling, with the diagonal of the 2 clearly visible with the 3. The bottom point of the star points to the left edge of the 6 on the overdate variety, and to the right edge of the 8 on the Normal Date proofs. This Premium Gem is remarkable, with the obverse entirely brilliant and untoned, and the reverse bathed in deep gold. Population: 5 in 66 (2 in 66+) Cameo, 2 finer. CAC: 3 in 66, 1 finer (11/19).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 22ZP, PCGS# 83713)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
