    1865 Three Cent Silver, Toned MS66
    Only 8,000 Circulation Strikes

    1865 3CS MS66 PCGS. CAC. Only 8,000 three cent silver coins were struck in 1865. Most likely these were used to pay off odd sums owed to depositors. Not nearly enough were minted to satisfy any large-scale commercial demand, and few would have circulated anyway during or after the Civil War. This CAC-approved Premium Gem features lovely gunmetal-blue and golden patina with radiant mint frost beneath the toning. Well-struck and typically clashed but far better than the average survivor. Population: 12 in 66 (3 in 66+), 6 finer. CAC: 10 in 66, 2 finer (4/20).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22ZF, PCGS# 3685)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
