About This Set: Nearly Complete Certified Three Cent pattern collection. I am always looking to upgrade, so please contact me if you feel you have a pattern/splasher/die trial that may fit
Started the collection in 1977 with my Father. Had nearly completed the Trime portion of the collection by 2000. At that time, slowly began accumulating the Nickel portion. Bob Simpson collection was largely a mirror image lacking many of the Trimes and nearly complete with the Nickels. Was largely able to complete and fill in these missing patterns when his collection became available including upgrading a few of the Trimes.
Missing coins: J-112A and J-1260 are only certified coins left to finish the certified available coins. The J-112A, I have but it is not certified as such. I will be publishing a book on Three cent patterns and hopefully it can be certified at that time. I believe J-804 to exist but not certified. If you have information regarding this pattern, please contact me
