Owner Comments:

1861 3CS – Civil War Collection – In 1861, there were 497,000 “Three Cent Silver” piece minted in Philadelphia. No other US Mint produced 3CS pieces that year. The survival rate has been estimated at 7,500 pieces with 1,000 being uncirculated and approximately 400 graded MS65 or higher. With amble minting, the collector can find reasonably priced coins available in the market although, as expected, the price increases on condition as well as eye appearance as many of the coins are not particularly attractive.

The 1861 3CS coin shown here has remarkable eye appeal and would request a premium over a traditional MS63 coin.
