1863 Silver Three-Cent Piece. Proof-66 Cameo (PCGS). CAC.

$7,500

Impressive Gem Proof 1863 Three-Cent Silver

Only 3 Finer at CAC

A visually stunning example with lovely champagne-gold and bronze iridescence throughout. Intense frosting on the devices imparts a bold Cameo contrast against the watery fields. Among the finest known with only 5 finer at PCGS and 3 finer at CAC.

Demand for Proof coins during the Civil War was not high and, as a result, the net mintage of 460 Proof 1863 silver three-cent pieces does not include examples that were melted as unsold. Fortunately, the ones that were sold were generally well preserved and a few Gem examples are known. In general, the issue was very well produced and Cameo examples are more available than for some of the other dates in the series. This particular survivor is superlative in every respect and destined for the finest of collections.

PCGS# 83712. NGC ID: 22ZP.

PCGS Population: 6; 5 finer.

CAC Population: 2; 3 finer.
