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 1855 PCGS MS66
$ 11750.00
No one knows the 3CS series as well as Legend. We have built the #1+2 MS and PR sets. We know how each date does and does not come. We know the rarities, we know every thing about 3CS pieces!

This piece is actually so ULTRA high end, we have resubmitted it 2X! We think the ONLY thing holding it back from an MS66+ or even MS67-strong die clashing (Mint made).

The surfaces overall are exceptionally clean and have a satiny texture. A super strong glowing luster enhances the beautiful and totally original green/pale blue/champagne toning that swirls all over. Every detail is needle sharp in strike. The eye appeal is exceptional!

PCGS 8, NGC 5, CAC 5 (possibly only 4). PCGS has only ONE MS67 higher (which is impounded in the #1 MS 3CS set-the Simpson Collection). The last one prior to this to selling in auction brought $12,925.00 10/2014 (it was an NGC coin). Prior that one brought $19,550.00. We unhesitatingly pronounce this piece to be in the top 2% graded for the date. This is a stunning Type or addition to any SUPERB GEM 3CS set. Your NOT going to get any better!

$ 6750.00
No dealer in the business knows or has handled as many GEM 3CS as Legend has. We have built the FINEST EVER MS + PR 3CS sets to prove that! This coin is incredible!

Superior mirrors beam from all over. They are also remarkably clean, have great clarity, and are surprisngly intensely reflective. Even using a strong glass, you will not find any surprise problems. The mirrors have a deep and glass like look. Both sides are evenly bathed by pretty and original golden brown color. Every detail is sharply struck and has thick frost. The eye appeal is gorgeous!

ONLY 800 were minted. PCGS 2, NGC 1, CAC 3 (this is duplicated). The true rarity of this piece in GEM is ridiculous. After nearly 30 years of operation, PCGS has only graded one coin-a PR66+ higher (housed in our #1 all time finest Legend Collection). The current Collectors Universe Value is $7,500.00. Why this coin is valued so far BELOW $10,000.00 is a mystery to us. The potential of this 156 year old top notch GEM is UNLIMITED!

$ 15500.00
Legend has built the #1, #2, and #3 PR 3CS sets. We know how dates do and do NOT come. We can assure you, this coin does indeed rank as one of the finest PR 1866's in existence!

The mirrors are ultra deep and boldly beam from all over. They have great clarity, cleanliness, and of course intense reflectivity. Save for a small patch of slightly irregular toning (only visible with a glass) we grade this coin at least a PR67+ (we did resubmit it). A stunning mix of original purple/magenta/gold/violet/green colors swirl all over. Every detail is not only fully struck, but has thick frost. The eye appeal is jaw dropping!

Only 725 were minted. PCGS 3, NGC 3, CAC 7 (there are definitely dupes). This coin last sold in auction for $23,500.00 04/2013. In today's market, it offers tremendous value!

$ 3150.00
This is a really great PR 3CS. It has SUPER HIGH END quality and great looks! We should know-we've built the top 3 sets in the Registry!

Shimmering mirrors are deep and beam vividly from all over. They are also crystal clear, super clean, and have bold reflectivity. Both sides are evenly covered by a magnificent mix of totally original olive/purple/violet/pale navy/deep green colors. The colors really do sparkle. Every detail is pinpoint sharp in strike. The eye appeal is stunning!

Only 625 were ever minted. PCGS 13, NGC 10, CAC 15 (the actual pops much less). An average and not wildly colored piece sold for $2,938.00 08/2015. We assure you, this piece is well worthy of its price!

3CS 1871 PCGS PR66
$ 2000.00
We love this precious little GEM. It has lots of quality and color!

Strong mirrors beam from all over. The mirrors are clean, have excellent clarity, and are nicely reflective. A moderate mix of totally original blue/golden brown/deep champagne/green colors swirl all over. Every detail is sharply struck and stands out. The eye appeal is terrific!

ONLY 960 were minted. PCGS 34, NGC 21, CAC 10. These are not as common as you might think. The last auction record we have for one selling was from 2012. That coin realized $1,880.00. We think at these price levels, its a super opportunity to build a set or put something worthy away.

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.
