1862 Silver Three-Cent Piece. Proof-66+ Cameo (PCGS). CAC.

Magnificent Gem Proof 1862 Three-Cent Silver

Just 3 Finer at PCGS

A lovely patina of golden bronze and cobalt blue color accents this immaculate Cameo Proof. The motifs are blanketed in rich Mint frosting and delicately float among the watery, reflective fields on both sides. A green sticker from CAC surely confirms the superior quality. At Proof-66+ Cameo (PCGS) CAC this is one of the very finest known and just three coins have been graded finer by PCGS and CAC.

The mintage figures for the Proof 1862 silver three-cent piece dropped almost by half from the previous year. Mint Director James Pollock decided to stop producing 1,000 Proof sets at the outset before orders from collectors appeared. According to the records, 550 Proof sets were produced, of which 430 sets were sold initially and a handful sold later on. Any unsold coins were destroyed. The trimes that that were produced were of very high quality and a number of Cameo examples are known. However, most are found in grades of Proof-65 and lower and they are seldom encountered any finer. This is an ideal jewel for an advanced Registry Set.

PCGS# 83711. NGC ID: 27C9.

PCGS Population: 1; 3 finer.
