1866 3C Three Cent Silver Type 3 PCGS MS67 (CAC)
Having built the all time FINEST EVER MS 3CS set, we know what it takes to have a great 1866. The coin in the #1 set is an MS68. This coin is a near miss MS68 and is just an amazing coin!
Incredibly clean surfaces have zero imperfections of ANY size. There are slight clash marks and few striations (typical). The surfaces are boldly prooflike. The contrast is bold. Plus, a surprisingly strong luster shows off the brilliant and totally ORIGINAL pale gold that frames the peripheries. There is light cameo contrast (mostly on the obverse). Every detail is pinpoint sharp in strike and has strong frost. The eye appeal is phenomenal!
PCGS 10, NGC 5, CAC 7. The last PCGS CAC to sell in auction brought $12,925.00 12/20. The current Collectors Universe value is $12,000.00. This is a near miss MS67+ that is worth more! Do not be fooled by the pops, this is a tough coin to find-and really rare looking like this!
