1862 3CS PR63 Certification #38907097, PCGS #3711

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

In 1863, the U.S. Mint produced only 550 Proof Three Cent Silver pieces.  This was a substantial mintage for the time, as there was a limited number of collectors that focused on obtaining American coins during the Civil War.  However, to the number of active collectors today, this is an extremely small supply.  As a result, this date is always popular and in-demand.

Of the examples certified by PCGS, the majority are either PR63 or PR64.  Gems are really hard to find and PR66 appears to be the terminal grade for non-Cameos.  Cameo examples are almost six time as rare as non-Cameos.  This is the only Civil War-era Trime that is unknown in Deep Cameo.
