Ron Guth:

The 1860 Three-Cent Silver has a lower mintage than the 1859, but is very similar in terms of the number of survivors and the grade distribution. Unfortunately, this date is tough in Superb condition, and it is one of the few "common" dates that has not been graded above MS66 by PCGS. This may be because of weak strikes or clashmarks, which are frequent occurrences on this date, because there is nothing else that makes this different than other dates. However, the Condition Census is filled with MS66 examples, plus a single PCGS MS66+ at the top end.
