Three Cent Nickels with Major Varieties, Proof (1865-1889)

Number of Required Coins : 26

Current Finest Possible Set Rating : 69.900

View Set Composition  ( Shop )

Proof three cent nickels seem to enjoy a greater popularity than their mint state counterparts. This series is slightly longer than the business strike one, and, despite significantly lower mintages, there are far more high-quality proofs on the market than business strikes. The earliest dates of the series are the rarest, with the 1865 being significantly more expensive than the other issues.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
