DESCRIPTION
Popular Proof-Only 1877 Nickel Three-Cent Piece

1877 Nickel Three-Cent Piece. Proof-66+ Cameo (PCGS). CAC.
Delightful satin to semi-reflective surfaces exhibit subtle golden highlights to otherwise light gray surfaces. Sharply struck throughout with expectably strong eye appeal at the premium Gem grade level. Approval from CAC confirms this superior quality.
Among the more eagerly sought nickel three-cent pieces in today's market, the 1877 is one of only three Proof-only issues in this series, alongside the 1878 and 1886. In the absence of a circulation strike issue for the year, the 1877 remains the rarest date in this odd denominations series. Although many numismatic references provide a mintage of 900 coins for the Proof 1877, the actual mintage is unknown since it was not recorded by Mint personnel at the time. Nonetheless, only about 650 examples survive, the vast majority of which are in grades of Proof-65 and lower. Fewer still show the strong Cameo contrast of the present Gem.

PCGS# 83773.NGC ID: 275X.

PCGS Population: 7; 19 finer.
