Lot Description
1884 3CN MS65 PCGS. From 1883 to 1885, production of proof three cent nickels exceeded that of the corresponding business strikes, and the 1884 issue has a circulation mintage of only 1,700 pieces. This Gem representative is a clearly Mint State coin with its swirling luster that is semireflective only on the reverse. Peach and green-gold overtones grace otherwise steely surfaces, while the obverse adds a spot of deep toning at the upper right corner of the E in UNITED. This issue seldom comes on the market in such fine grade, and series enthusiasts will recognize the opportunity. Population: 5 in 65, 2 finer (11/12).
