    Rare Early American Type

    1783 Chalmers 3 Pence PCGS/CAC AU50 ex: Newman


    Annapolis silversmith John Chalmers issued silver threepence, sixpence, and shillings dated 1793 to reduce the amount of clipped and worn-out Spanish-American silver in circulation. This original AU displays lovely pewter-gray fields with fantastic blue and russet undertones. Though slightly off center, the legends are complete, and the overall eye appeal is captivating! An exciting opportunity for early American type collectors as the threepence is rarer than the Long and Short Worm shillings.

    Key, First Year Proof

    1865 3cN PCGS/CAC Proof 66 CAM


    The key date in the proof 3-cent nickel series along with the proof-only 1877. One of just 500 coins struck in proof this year. Excellent contrast between the fields and devices. Some weakness in the frost on the roman numerals holds it back from the DCAM designation. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal.

    Essentially Flawless

    1866 3cN NGC Proof 67 CAM *Star*


    One of just 725 coins struck in proof this year, but very few exist in such incredible condition. Gold toning throughout that enhances and does not hinder the reflectivity. NGC has granted their Star designation for exceptional eye appeal. There are none finer in Cameo, though there are around two dozen known DCAM's.
