    Original Toning

    1871 3CS MS66 PCGS. CAC. Rich navy and silver-gray shadings embrace each side of this satiny Premium Gem. There are no mentionable abrasions, as the CAC endorsement is well earned.

Population: 38 in 66 (6 in 66+), 16 finer. CAC: 18 in 66, 5 finer (3/21).(Registry values: N2998)

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
