    1873 Three Cent Silver, PR67 Deep Cameo
    The Sole Finest Deep Cameo at PCGS
    Final-Year, Proof-Only Issue

    1873 3CS PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Proof 1873 three cent silver pieces are mainly seen in PR65 and lower grades. Superb Gem examples of this final-year issue are rare and highly sought-after, as this issue was only produced in proof format.

    PCGS lists nine 1873 proofs in the Deep Cameo category, and of these, the present PR67 coin is the sole finest (1/21). An essential Registry Set piece, this coin displays virtual perfection from both a strike and preservation viewpoint. Exceptional sharpness characterizes the central shield, while the fields offer liquidlike mirroring without distracting contact marks. Deep amber-gold toning covers each side. On the reverse, the fields appear lapped, as the recesses of the letter C are weakened by die polishing -- typical of this type during the 1870s. Advanced collectors will not find a better 1873 proof (1/21).(Registry values: N4719)
