    1872 Three Cent Silver, MS68
    Last Circulation Issue, Sole Finest

    1872 3CS MS68 PCGS. CAC. 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 none of them can equal this piece. NGC has never examined an MS67 or better example. This Superb Gem 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: 1 in 68, 0 finer. CAC: 1 in 68, 0 finer (1/21).(Registry values: N1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22ZN, PCGS# 3693)

    Weight: 0.75 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
