Trime Time! Post your 3c silvers (eye candy thread 👀)

P0CKETCHANGEP0CKETCHANGE Posts: 2,259 ✭✭✭✭✭

Haven’t seen a trime thread in awhile, so let’s show some love to the second smallest circulating US coin 🤏

1862 PR63 CAC


This is my only one of this type. I also think the 1851-O is really neat with the New Orleans mintmark.

Nothing is as expensive as free money.

    Neat thread! Is this a series that is completable in mint state? Looking at a price guide, there are lots of pricey dates from the middle to the end of the series with the 1868 and 1872 being the keys.

    Not really... with some work you can do 1851 --> 1862.

    1863 --> 1872 are much much rarer and much much harder to find and much much much more expen$ive.

    Also, recall that the mintages are not an accurate indication of survival, a substantial but unknown number were melted in 1873 along with all the other "obsolete" silver.

    It becomes significantly more reasonable to complete a date set if one mixes business and proof strikes.

    The hardest US regular issue coin to grade IMO.
    How would you grade this one?

    I think all 3 cent silver are interesting and pretty, but am fascinated with the post 1862 rare business strike dates! Cool collection!
