Lot Description
1887 3CN MS66 PCGS. A scarce, low mintage business strike from the last decade of production for the three cent nickel. Only 5,001 business strikes of this date were minted, and survivors are very scarce and valuable in all grades. This is an obvious business strike as it lacks any real reflectivity in the fields and there is strong die clashing on each side. Highly lustrous and nicely struck, with pleasing silver-gold and sky-blue coloration. Population: 7 in 66, 1 finer (12/06). From The Frank J. McCarthy Jr. Collection.
