Collectors Club Submit Coins Price Guide Set Registry® PCGS CoinFacts
From Don's Desk

The PCGS Set Registry is extremely helpful to any coin collector. It helps you keep track of your coins, when you bought them, from whom, what you paid, you can add notes to each coin and photographs as well! The system will even tell you each coin’s value, as well as your entire inventory, per the PCGS Price Guide. And you can add non-PCGS graded coins to your inventory. It will even track your purchases and sales. Everything mentioned so far is completely confidential. No one sees your information, including PCGS. Competing is fun, but to me the hidden value of the PCGS Registry is what I just described!

PCGS CoinFacts – Three Cent Silver

The United States Three Cents is an unusual denomination that first appeared in 1851, although pattern coins for the denomination were produced in 1849 and 1850. The original purpose of the Three Cents coins was to provide an intermediate denomination between the Cent and Half Dime, making it easier to change some of the odd foreign coins that were legal tender in America at that time. In 1851, postal rates were dropped from five to three cents. While three Large Cents could have been used to purchase a postage stamp, the bulky copper coins were expensive to produce. Thus, a coin of three cents value had two purposes, enough to get the denomination started in 1851.
