DESCRIPTION
Rare Prooflike Gem 1864 Three-Cent Silver MS-66 PL (PCGS) CAC

1864 Silver Three-Cent Piece. MS-66 PL (PCGS). CAC.
A captivating premium Gem with rich charcoal-russet and rainbow-colored peripheral toning that speaks volumes about the coin's originality. The centers are nearly untoned to allow full appreciation of mirrored fields and sharply struck, satiny design elements. Just 1 example ranks finer at PCGS and only 2 are listed higher at CAC.
Produced during the penultimate year of the Civil War, the 1864 silver three-cent piece emerged during a time when silver coinage was no longer found in circulation in the Eastern and Midwestern United States. Such pieces had disappeared from commercial channels in the spring of 1862. The circulation strike mintage for this issue amounted to a mere 12,000 pieces. Even common date silver three-cent pieces such as the 1851, 1852 and 1853 are notable condition rarities when offered in the finest Mint State grades. To encounter an upper end Gem survivor of a scarce, low mintage issue such as the 1864 is even more remarkable, especially given that this beautiful piece is one of just two for the issue to have received a coveted PL designation from PCGS as of this writing. This is certainly one of the nicest examples of the issue that we have ever offered.

PCGS# 83684.

PCGS Population: 1; 1 finer in this category. CAC Population: 1; 2 finer.
