Here`s the exciting "Closed 3" variety, so-called because the knobs at the ends of the 3 are so close together it looks like an 8. Back then, workers at the mint struck the date into dies by hand. Midway through 1873, the mint replaced the punch, correcting the problem, and creating this low-mintage variety. Travel back to the days of the second Philadelphia Mint, when dates were punched by hand, with this important coin today.
