Three Cent Silvers - Proof Strikes

Proof Three Sent Silvers saw limited production in the early years (1851-1858) thus making them very difficult to obtain. Starting in 1859 and through the end of the series, 1873, production fluctuated from 500 to 1,000 pieces according to mint records. As with most proof coins, these appear to have a high survival rate and are usually obtainable through the internet and or at major coin shows and auctions. As for my collection, I am still searching for the 1864 in the 1863-1873 date range.

Rating: The weighted average of all coin grades (i.e. aggregated sum of each coin grade + CAC premium multiplied by its rarity factor divided by the sum of all rarity factors). Missing coins are included and assigned a grade of 0. This metric is the basis for order rank.

Complete: The number of coin entries divided by the total number of coins in the Set.

Weighted Grade: The weighted average of all coin grades (see calculation above), but excluding any missing coins.

%: The ratio of coins certified by CAC (either green or gold sticker). Calculated as the number of CAC coins divided by the total number of entered coins.

Rarity Factor: The rarity assessment for each date/variety uses the Sheldon scale of R1 through R8 with a R1 weight being the most common while an R8 weight being the most difficult to locate. Rarity estimates are by Terry Hess.
