1867 3CS MS66 PCGS
It is well known that three cent silver pieces struck after 1862 were from habit rather than need (similarly shown with current Kennedy half dollars). In 1867, only 4,000 circulation strikes were made, many of which went undistributed. This is a wonderfully preserved survivor that features central placement of reddish-russet toning bordered with sea-blue at the outer regions. Irregular shadings of bright silver-gray are also present. The underlying fields impart a semi-reflective glow, and some of the highest detail points are not quite full, diagnostic of a circulation strike. This is one of the finest known examples to either service. Population: 3 in 66, none finer at either service. (PCGS 3687)
