Lot Description
1867 3CS MS66 PCGS. The heyday of the three cent silver series had been reached several years before 1867. Coins struck after 1862 were more out of habit than necessity, as seen by the mintage of only 4,000 business strikes in 1867. This magnificently preserved example is one of the finest known. Each side shows russet and cobalt-blue toning with the occasional streak of original brilliance. The fields are bright and semiprooflike. The strike lacks complete high-point definition, a hallmark of one of the rare circulation strikes. Population: 3 in 66, 0 finer (6/11).
