Having built the all time FINEST EVER MS 3CS Set-the Law Simpson Collection, we have searched all over to find the VERY BEST 3CS pieces. This piece is second finest. Only the Simpson coin-an MS67+ is better. ANY 1872 MS64 or higher 3CS is an exceptionally RARE coin.
Using a strong glass you can see some light die clashing which proves out it being an MS vs a Proof. There are mirrored surfaces on both sides-that is to be expected from the tiny mintage. A phenomenal coating of light gold covers the centers while the peripheries are framed by a gorgeous ring of blue/violet colors on the obverse. The reverse is an even pale green/light blue/gold combo. Of course the colors are totally original. Every detail is pinpoint sharp in strike and has thick frost. The eye appeal is like the rarity-tremendous!
Only 1000 pieces were ever minted. PCSG 2, NGC 1, CAC 1 (we believe the Simpson coin still shows as the other MS67 even though it is a MS67+). This coin sold in auction for $54,050.00 02/2015. At that time we were contemplating starting another MS set. We have since decided not to. This coin deserves to be placed in a remarkable collection! Once this coin is placed, chances are you will never have a shot at anything even close.
