1851 Three Cent Silver PCGS MS65 (CAC)

1851 Three Cent Silver PCGS MS65 (CAC)

1851 was the first year of issue for the Three Cent Silver and a huge mintage of 5,446,400 coins were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. These coins went out into circulation through banks. The Mint did not authorize individual request for the coins but instead, the public was told they could exchange gold and silver coins for the trime at local banks. Because of the unique distribution, unciculated, high grade coins are tough to come by. This stunning example displays swathes of gold that cascades down the obverse with a small area of caramel by the rim.

1851 Three Cent Silver PCGS MS65 (CAC)

1851 Three Cent Silver PCGS MS65 (CAC)

Between New Found Gold in the 1840’s (California Gold Rush) allowing the value of gold to decrease, Silver prices increased with no new mines producing silver, and the postal rate decreased, the Three Cent Silver Coin was produced. Alas, Production of Gold coins increased, silver coins decreased and postal rates went to 3c. A 3c coin was produced using less silver and readily available for the U.S. Post office. A win – win. 1851 was the first year of issue and here is a great example. A silvery-blue patina is splashed with a wonderful lemon toning on the upper area of the obverse. Housed in an old green holder.

1851-O Three Cent Silver NGC MS65PL (CAC)

A very popular date because of the mintmark, the only such issue in the Three Cent Silver series. PCGS does not designate “Proof Like” and NGC has only graded 3 coins so far, one in 63, 64 and this lone one in MS65PL. Stunning untoned surfaces with an amazing strike. The Proof Like surfaces exhibit great reflectivity. A beauty!

1852 Three Cent Silver PCGS MS65 (CAC)

1852 Three Cent Silver PCGS MS65 (CAC)

Although popular initially when the Three Cent Coins went into circulation, the public quickly changed their minds. Because of the small size coins were easy to lose and as we know, silver quickly becomes discolored and dirty. The coins name evolved – Three Cent Silver to Trime then lastly and not lovingly the “Fish Scale.” With a mintage of over 18 million in 1852 PCGS has only graded 1139 coins in all Mint State conditions, a very tough coin. This representative boasts mostly untoned surfaces with bursts of golden tones placed throughout the obverse while the reverse color gravitates to the peripheries. A gorgeous coin!
