Three Cent Silver
Item - 11351
3CS 1851O PCGS MS66
$ 8250.00
We have always loved this date and grade. Sadly a few too many have been graded 66 that should not be. If those did not exist, this coin would be worth over $10,000.00 easy! This coin definitely has its own legs!

If you really look hard and inspect the surfaces with a strong glass, you will there are ZERO imperfections of ANY size, ANY where. The surfaces are also satiny smooth and have a good luster. Both sides are evenly covered by swirling colors of original golden brown/green/pale violet/olive/rose. All of the details are sharply struck do stand out clearly. The eye appeal is really nice!

PCGS 26, NGC 15, CAC 16. The last one to sell in a major auction brought $7,638.00 02/2015. In the past two years we have seen these sell from $7,300.00 to $12,900.00. Opportunity knocks for sure here!

3CS 1853 PCGS MS67

$ 5500.00
We marvel at how such a tiny coin can survive over 162 years in such a remarkable state of preservation. All we can say is WOW! This coin will be a killer addition to any GEM Type or MS 3CS set.

Pristine surfaces cover both sides. There is a microscopic die break on the obverse and that's it. A full booming luster shows off totally original pearl white color. Every detail is fully struck (there is NO weakness in the center shield) and do stand out. The eye appeal is like the quality-amazing!

PCGS 7, NGC 10, CAC 5. Last year, one brought $7,637.00 04/2014 Heritage. The current Collectors Universe Value is $8,000.00. We bough this piece right and are offering it at a more then fair price.

3CS 1854 PCGS MS66
$ 9750.00
We've built the all time FINEST and runner up FINEST MS sets of 3CS pieces. So we know better then anyone how these should come. This piece certainly ranks as one the very best in existence!

First, you can see the full booming luster from across the room. The luster is unbroken and is that powerful. You can also clearly see the pristine surfaces. There is not a single problem anywhere. Both sides are evenly coated by an unusual but totally original mix of pale navy/olive/gold/russet/green colors. Every single detail is needle sharp in strike and can be seen with out a glass. The eye appeal is fabulous!

PCGS 9, NGC 4, CAC 7 (we think this is 2x). PCGS has graded one MS67. Amazingly NO PCGS pieces have sold in auction since 2007. Published values simply are not correct for this date. The great rarity of this date and grade can not be overstated!

3CS 1856 PCGS MS66
$ 18000.00
Legend Numismatics numismatists are world class experts in both MS+PR 3CS pieces as we have built BOTH the FINEST in each category. We loved this coin at first sight!

We strongly believe this coin was plucked from the bank 159 years ago and carefully saved since then. There are NO foreign problems like ticks. Only with a strong glass can you see light MINT MADE die lines. The surfaces are also slightly satiny. A moderate luster shows off the totally original pale pewter/silver toning. All of the details are extremely sharp in strike. The eye appeal is excellent!

PCGS 4, NGC 5, CAC 4. PCGS has graded only two coins higher (one is an MS66+ in the all time greatest ever set-Simpson). Prior to this coin selling, a PCGS MS66 PCGS CAC sold for $23,500.00 05/2015. If you are building a GEM MS 3CS set or even a Type set, this coin affords you one heck of an opportunity!

3CS 1860 PCGS PR66
$ 9750.00
This is a mystery date in a way. Not only can we never find any, when we do they are poor quality with little eye appeal. It was easy to buy this Superb GEM!

Extra deep mirrors beam from all over. Only with a strong glass can you find a few minor planchet issues, but overall the surfaces are clean. The mirrors are crystal clear and have bold reflectivity. A wonderful moderate mix of original pale navy/purple/blue/pale champagne colors swirl all over. Every detail is sharply struck and does exhibit frosting. The eye appeal is super!

Even though 1000 were minted, most were melted due to poor sales at the Mint. PCGS 3, NGC 3, CAC 6 (we're pretty sure this coin is 2-3x). There is one PR67+. Good luck on finding another 1860 in PR66! The current Collectors Universe Value is $10,000.00. NO PCGS CAC piece has ever sold at auction. We can't stress any more how much of a "stopper" date this is!

3CS 1867 PCGS MS66 GOLD-CAC!!!
$ 23750.00
Having built the #1 all time MS set and the set right below it, we know what these should look like. This coin not only is a real MS piece, but it really is a 66.9++. We did resubmit it once, we think PCGS simply does not understand the coin. Maybe one day!

Super satiny surfaces are ultra clean. Typical to most other rarer dates (1868+1869) this coin does NOT display any prooflike surfaces. A strong luster shows off 100% natural toning shades of blue/burnt orange/gold that swirl all over. The details are so needle sharp in strike you do NOT need any glass to see them. The eye appeal is terrific!

ONLY 4000 were ever minted. PCGS 2, NGC 2, CAC 5 (this coin is at least 2x CAC). PCGS has graded 2 coins higher-which we think is the single coin that is in our #1 Simpson Collection. The coin offered here last sold in auction at Gardner for $20,563.00. We think that was a bargain. You never ever see these MS65 or higher. Opportunity knocks so loud for any 3CS Collector!

Keep in mind, the quality of this piece is considered MS67 by CAC-who did put a a rare GOLD sticker on it!

Three Cent Silver
Item - 11362
$ 3750.00
This is an outstanding piece! We know the PR 3CS world better then any one. We built and own the #1 all time finest Proof Set. We can tell you, 1870 is NOT a date we find often with real flashy mirrors like this!

Deep mirrors are crystal clear, are super clean, and have bold reflectivity. You do not have to imagine the mirrors blast. The mirrors also look like a freshly made sheet of glass. Both sides are evenly covered by a delightful mix of totally original pale blue/gold/purple colors that are lively, not drab. Every detail is pinpoint sharp in strike and have light frost. The eye appeal is exceptional!

PCGS 11, NGC 2, CAC 10. The last record we see for one selling at auction: $4,320.00 03/2015. We can tell you, we've paid as high as $6,500.00 for a superb piece! This coin is a really great value!

3CS 1872 PCGS MS67
$ 60000.00
Having built the all time FINEST EVER MS 3CS Set-the Law Simpson Collection, we have searched all over to find the VERY BEST 3CS pieces. This piece is second finest. Only the Simpson coin-an MS67+ is better. ANY 1872 MS64 or higher 3CS is an exceptionally RARE coin.

Using a strong glass you can see some light die clashing which proves out it being an MS vs a Proof. There are mirrored surfaces on both sides-that is to be expected from the tiny mintage. A phenomenal coating of light gold covers the centers while the peripheries are framed by a gorgeous ring of blue/violet colors on the obverse. The reverse is an even pale green/light blue/gold combo. Of course the colors are totally original. Every detail is pinpoint sharp in strike and has thick frost. The eye appeal is like the rarity-tremendous!

Only 1000 pieces were ever minted. PCSG 2, NGC 1, CAC 1 (we believe the Simpson coin still shows as the other MS67 even though it is a MS67+). This coin sold in auction for $54,050.00 02/2015. At that time we were contemplating starting another MS set. We have since decided not to. This coin deserves to be placed in a remarkable collection! Once this coin is placed, chances are you will never have a shot at anything even close.

3CS 1872 PCGS PR66
$ 10000.00
As you know, Laura Sperber President Legend owns the finest ever collection of PR 3CS. She spared NO expense to find the VERY best and wildest pieces. It is her feeling, this particular coin is one of the best toned pieces that exists. She has a even colored PR68!

Technically, at the very least PCGS should have graded this coin a +. Who knows what they saw. The mirrors do beam from allover. They are crystal clear and have intense reflectivity. If you use a strong glass, you'll see a tiny lint mark or two. The color is out of this world. Totally original circles of royal blue/violet/gold/purple look like a neon sign in times Square. The colors are totally electric and you can see them from feet away. All of the details are frosted and have crisp sharp strikes. The eye appeal is crazy your eye balls will pop out and roll around!

PCGS 18, NGC 19, CAC 14. We must admit, we did try it for a PR67. The value here is based solely on the wild colors! No other dealer alive knows PR 3CS like we do. take our word, this coin has few if any peers.
