Ron Guth: 1858 was the last year in which the Mint made Type 2 Three-Cent Silvers. Production in this year was the highest it had been since 1853. At nearly 2 million pieces, this date is easily the most common of the Type 2 dates.
This date often comes with clashmarks and peripheral weakness, but some early state, unclashed examples exhibit good strikes, as well. These should comman a premium, but as yet, they do not.
The finest examples certified by PCGS is a single MS67+ (illustrated above).
