1865 Three Cent Nickel PCGS PR64 (CAC)

1865 Three Cent Nickel PCGS PR64 (CAC)

A stunning example which displays watery surfaces offset by pleasing devices. Always considered one of the most elusive and desirable proof issues in the series. This date has a lot going for it – it is the first year of issue and has an estimated mintage of just 500 pieces, the lowest in the series.

1865/1865 FS-304 Three Cent Nickel NGC MS65

1865/1865 FS-304 Three Cent Nickel NGC MS65

A wonderful example of this dramatic overdate. Produced in the first year of issue, when the mint employees were just learning how to manufacture coinage in nickel. While preparing the die, some inattentive worker accidentally punched the date too close to the edge, noticed his mistake, and corrected it. Attesting to the need to use any and all dies, this one was still used for quite some time and shows the stress associated with longevity, i.e. the die cracks on the reverse.

Showing a strong strike with minimal (if any) surface abrasions, this coin was no doubt saved at the time of issue. Probably by an eagle-eyed citizen who noticed this error.

A popular and very collectible variety, this issue is listed as FS-304 in the latest issue of the “Cherry Pickers Guide” by Bill Fiva and J. T. Stanton.

1866 Three Cent Nickel NGC MS66 (CAC)

1866 Three Cent Nickel NGC MS66 (CAC)

Here is a great example of the “short lived” Three Cent Nickel design. The obverse and reverse show some great die-clashing that makes this piece truly unique. But what will really capture your attention is the super radiating luster that makes this coin shimmer. All this and a great strike, what more do you need?

1866 Three Cent Nickel PCGS MS65 (CAC)

1866 Three Cent Nickel PCGS MS65 (CAC)

Longacre’s Three Cent Nickel was minted to replace and retire the unpopular 3c fractional notes that had been used for postage because of silver hoarding during the Civil War. The Three Cent Nickel ran for 25 years, discontinuation was a result of postage rates dropping to 2c and confusion between this coin and the dime, which was the same size. A wonderful example with some great die clashing that is visible on both the obverse and reverse.

Longacre’s Three Cent Nickel was minted to replace and retire the unpopular 3c fractional notes that had been used for postage because of silver hoarding during the Civil War.

Wonderful reflective surfaces give a stunning backdrop to the sharply struck devices. Just a slight rose hue barely discernable to the eye. The production quality of proof coinage in the early 1870’s is sub-par as opposed to the quintessential type coin of the late 1880’s, this piece is the exception to the rule.
