Choice $795 Type 2 Large Star, Steely-Frosted Luster, Superb Bright Light Performance.

An undoubtedly premium example with elevated rims and surfaces are that unabraded. Have you consider the thought of building a three piece 3 cent silver type set (Type 1, 2, and 3) with pieces certified by CACG? If this idea is compelling, this 1858 example would be an excellent starting point given its fair offer priced. So far this is the sole 1858 3 cent silver to find its way into a CACG holder with a CDN CAC guide price of $780 at the MS62 level.

3Cent Silver  1873 1873
Gem $2950 Superb Eye Appeal, Brilliant Reflectance, Undisturbed Mirrors, Conservative Grading. Welcome to the world of CACG conservative grading as illustrated by this GFRC-Gem rated 1873 PF64 3 cent silver. There is no question about the superb eye appeal as brilliant reflective radiance is intense as it is spectacular. Obverse mirrors are a bit "watery" with waves of center rose and surrounding blues. Peripheral reverse toning is a darker blue and copper gold that transitions to rose and yellow gold under a bright light. This piece is hairline free with a touch of micro chatter on the upper obverse that corresponds to the certified grade. However, the eye appeal is that of at least one higher grade. The is the first proof 3 cent silver to be holdered by CACG. Housed in new CAC Grading (2023) holder and graded consistent with CAC approval standards.
3Cent Silver  1873 1873
Gem $3500 Superb Mirrors, Multi-Color Ring Toning, Exquisite Gem, Osprey Collection . While at the Pittsburgh ANA, Dan White would head off and survey the substantial bourse floor for potential inventory additions. He returned, at one point, with this gorgeous 1873 proof 3 cent silver and a smile on his face. I can understand the smile after laying eyes on this exquisitely preserved gem. Under a light source, the field are sharply mirrored and highly reflective. The luster amplifies beautiful ring toning. Let's tart with the obverse that has a sea-green center that is surrounded by peripheral yellow and copper-gold. The reverse patina is fully transparent with the same center sea-green and edge golden shades though the color intensity is softer. I'm calling a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation for this wonderful Osprey Collection find. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2023) holder with CAC approval.
Three Cent Nickels
3Cent Nickel  1869 1869
Gem $985 Gem Original.. Briiliant radiance originates from the surfaces of this early three-cent nickel, with original mint bloom freely flowing from the largely untoned surfaces. A few tan shades are evident to the right of Liberty, while the reverse exhibits uniform nickel-silver patina. The CAC price guide value is $936. CAC reports 19 pieces at MS65, with 25 coins higher, all at MS66. In our opinion, the foundational value of this coin is compelling for less than $1,000 one can acquire a 19th century type coin that is only a point removed from finest known.

3Cent Nickel  1882 1882
Choice HOLD
New June 9! Low Mintage, Limited Availability, Choice Original, Lakeland Collection. Consignor Price Reduction. The 1882 three cent nickel mintage amounted to only 22,200 pieces as the Philadelphia mint ramped down this design and denomination. This date is scarce and difficult to locate in all grades.
