Very difficult to locate so choice (the pops are incorrect for this date) Sleek, silvery, and boldly reflective mirrors burst from both sides. All of the details are sharply struck and have thick frost. The eye appeal is pretty and flashy!
Watery, dove-gray surfaces with a slightly soft strike. Although the original mintage of proofs was 1,000 pieces, few were preserved!
Original toned surfaces...Blue hues...
Reflective fields and frosted motifs show rich gold and violet iridescence, especially so at the rims. Sharp and appealing, a near-pristine gem of a high order. PCGS has not certified a Proof example of the date at a finer grade, making the present specimen even more appealing!
This richly toned, mostly golden-russet example reveals deep reflectivity as the coin turns into the light. Certain angles also allow appreciation of the deeply frosted devices yielding the pronounced cameo effect of often coveted by collectors. Fully struck and free of distracting hairlines!
An incredible cameo coin that traces back to the owner of a small coin shop that had stuck it away many decades ago!
A very flashy, glassy mirrored Gem proof, this piece displays deep cobalt-blue toning over most of each side with lighter, occasional accents of golden and rose color. A very impressive proof whose depth of toning does not obscure the underlying brightness of the proof mirrors.
This is an absolutely gorgeous Trime with glittering fields and well frosted devices. Bold contrast is evident beneath warm crimson-champagne iridescence. Only 4,360 Three Cent Silvers were produced in 1871, 960 pieces of which were proofs. To date, this is only the second proof 1871 certified as Cameo by PCGS, the other grading only PR64
1872 3CS PR66 Cameo PCGS. Using a single set of dies, the Philadelphia Mint delivered 1,000 business strike and 950 proof Three Cent Silvers in 1872. Since representatives of the first group do not turn up with any degree of regularity, extant specimen strikings are prized among date collectors. Whereas some proof 1872 Trimes in today's market are impaired, the present Gem is free of bothersome post-production impairments. Glassy in the fields, both sides are also suitably well frosted over the devices. A few small planchet flaws and strike throughs (both as struck) are noted.
Simply Dazzling, glassy mirrors fail to be tamed by mottled russet and turquoise iridescence. One of the finest survivors of this desirable proof-only issue we recall seeing!
