DESCRIPTION
Deep Cameo Gem Proof 1865 Three-Cent Nickel
Only 4 Finer at PCGS

1865 Nickel Three-Cent Piece. Proof-66+ Deep Cameo (PCGS).
A dazzling Gem Proof with rich champagne-gold toning on both sides. Fully struck with stark Deep Cameo contrast between satiny devices and deeply mirrored fields. An attractive and well produced piece that is among the most pristine from this issue. Just 4 coins have been graded finer by PCGS in the Deep Cameo category.

While more than twice as many 1865 nickel three-cent pieces were struck for circulation than for any of the other dates in this series, among the Proof strikes this is actually the rarest date of the type. The mintage of this issue is unknown since it was not recorded by Mint personnel, however at least 500 pieces were struck for inclusion in the year's silver Proof sets, which were prepared in 100-set batches on February 25, March 10, 16, 20 and 24. Since this is a first year issue, additional Proof 1865 nickel three-cent pieces were undoubtedly struck for individual sale, but the number of coins involved was probably minimal. As always, the first-year status of this piece contributes an excessive demand that far exceeds supply.

PCGS# 93761.NGC ID: 275K.

PCGS Population: 3; 4 finer.
