Silver Three Cent Pieces were also known as ‘Trimes’ and were minted from 1851 to 1873. They were the smallest United States silver coin.
Non-proof Silver Three Cent Pieces from 1863 to 1872 are rare as nearly the entire production was melted in 1873. 1873 was a scarce proof-only issue and the last year of the Silver Three Cent series with a mintage of just 600 coins.
Vibrant satiny white luster, with just a faint champagne hue, over nearly flawless surfaces.
Very sharply struck with frosty white luster and a light sprinkle of gold. Devoid of marks or problems of any kind. Super quality!
CAC. A beautiful Gem Proof with lightly mottled rose, gold, blue, and green toning. Only about 100 known with few approaching this quality!
CAC. Blast white surfaces and a strong strike with deep mirrored fields. Approximately 210 minted which is the lowest proof mintage in the series and only about 100 are estimated to have survived. A wonderful example with excellent eye appeal.
A needle-sharp strike and mark-free with vibrant cream-white luster. Both sides show very bold die clash marks.
A beautiful blast white Gem with frost on the design, although not enough to garner a CAMEO designation from PCGS. Just 1,000 minted.
CAC. Beautiful intense satiny white luster. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are nearly flawless. Super eye appeal!
Sharply struck with die clashing on both sides. The surfaces show vibrant mostly white luster with a faint champagne hue. Super quality and great eye appeal!
A proof-only issue with a mintage of just 460. This is a wonderful example with frosted devices and bright reflective fields. The surfaces are impeccably preserved with original light turquoise and gold toning. PCGS has graded just 4 coins finer!
Rich multi-color toning highlights mirrored fields and cameo devices. Difficult Civil War date with a mintage of only 500. Desirability is further enhanced by the scarcity of business strikes. No cameo grades finer at NGC.
CAC. Beautiful gold and green pastels rest upon highly reflective fields. The surfaces are nearly pristine and the eye appeal is excellent. Housed in an old 'blue label' holder.
CAC. Beautiful deep iridescent toning with shades of turquoise, lavender, green, and gold.
A pleasing example of this scarce proof-only date with a blend of turquoise, rose, and gold toning over nearly flawless surfaces. Just 600 minted.
