    Very pretty coin. I am having a hard time reading that one. I think I am seeing wear on the obverse and will call it AU-55.

    If there's any rub at all I'm not seeing it. With that said 64 and very attractive.
    Edited to say these pics are not the greatest to judge this coin by. But good enough to say it's beautiful.
    Carry on :)

    I think I see rub on the shield and on the star lines.
    So without being able to discern luster or surface disruptions from the picture, it looks like a technical 55 that maybe got bumped to 58 or 58+ for color.
    So, I will say it got a 58+.
    I like it.

    Are you going to reveal so we can see who wins bragging rights or are we still guessing?

    I think those marks are scuffs on the slab. 64

  • USMarine6USMarine6 Posts: 1,936 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I do like the look. I won't take a guess on this one cause I'm afraid of looking stupid after you reveal the grade.

  • topstuftopstuf Posts: 14,803 ✭✭✭✭✭

    45 with nice toning.

    Pretty AU, the change of color on the high points is both due to weak strike and loss of original surface luster.

    I have no clue what a TPGS would grade this. Rims and color indicate possible Proof (too lazy to look up diagnostics of PR die for this date :( ). Strike - not Proof.

  • goldengolden Posts: 9,045 ✭✭✭✭✭

    So what does it grade?

  • BillJonesBillJones Posts: 33,472 ✭✭✭✭✭


    Here is an Type III trime that is in an NGC MS-65 holder. It shows the contours of the design on the star, which seem to be rubbed on the trime which is up for guess the grade. That, along with the fact that I see wear on the “III” on the reverse, are why I graded it AU-55. I also can’t believe that the mint would have issued a Proof that was that poorly stuck in the center. The Type II trimes had strike issues; the problem seemed to be solved on the Type III coins.

  • ParlousJoeParlousJoe Posts: 451 ✭✭✭

    going by the picture, I'm going to say a 50/55 maybe

  • BStrauss3BStrauss3 Posts: 3,145 ✭✭✭✭✭

    XF45

    Definite wear on the diamond, 1st lower orb and ribbon on the reverse.

    Could be lower, too much of the critical high points are under scuffs in the slab

    Thanks for helping Coinzip out before the lynching mob got better organized!

    No bragging rights for me. I shall hang my head in shame and shuffle back to the corner...

  • ldhairldhair Posts: 7,119 ✭✭✭✭✭

    My guess was 62. PCGS gave this one a 62 as well. The mint had a tough time making these.

  • BillJonesBillJones Posts: 33,472 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The 1855 is a Type II Three Cent Piece. Theh mint did have hard time making those, but it did much better with the type IIIs. It's similar to the situation with the Type II and Type III gold dollars. Interesting those gold dollars were also the work of James Longacre, like the Three Cent Pieces.

    The coin MS62 sold site see wholesale to a Florida dealer for $300.00.
    Something to be said about site seen as opposed to Internet photos.
