Owner Comments:

SUPERB GEM Proof 67 (PF 67) Star Cameo 1881 Nickel Three-Cent Piece. This hard to find coin is stunning with a sharp strike and near ultra cameo contrast. This nickel three-cent piece was designed by James B. Longacre; weight 1.94 grams; composition .750 copper and .250 nickel. In 1881 the Philadelphia mint produced exactly 3,575 of these proof nickel three cent pieces. Most do not have cameo contrast.
