Three Cent Silver
Item - 11273
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 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!

3CS 1869 PCGS MS67
A REAL MS67!!!
$ 29500.00
An amazing example of one of the rarest ever MS 3CS pieces that exists! Most important to start: there is NO question this coin is a genuine MINT STATE piece. Its quality is mind-blowing! Having built the all time FINEST EVER MS 3CS set, we know how out of this world this piece really is and will try to relate this to you.

Stunning and completely satiny in texture surfaces are remarkably clean. There is NO hint of any deep mirrors-just some faint semi-prooflike mirrors. A full booming luster shows off crisp snowy white surfaces. Every detail is fully struck and stands out with thick creamy white frost. The eye appeal is totally mesmerizing!

ONLY 4500 were ever minted. PCGS 1, NGC 2, CAC 1. Only the unbelievable MS68 (we placed in the Simpson collection) is finer. This coin has NEVER been in auction. We must tell you-when we were building the Simpson/LAW collection (#1 all time on the PCGS Registry), it took us 15 years-YES 15 YEARS to find an MS66 1869! So, if you are building a high grade MS 3CS set, we can not stress enough how extremely rare this date and grade are. There is NO accurate pricing on it either.

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.
