Ron Guth:

The 1871 Three-Cent Silver is a scarce, low mintage date that is desirable in all grades, though they are usually found nice since a high percentage were saved by collectors. The raw mintage is a mere 3,400 coins, plus 1,000 Proofs. Mint State versions come nice, usually MS-64 to MS-65. Even MS-66 and MS-67 examples show decent populations, including 11 at the PCGS MS67 level (as of November 2011). A small percentage come with Prooflike surfaces.
