Now own desirable classic Civil War-era coins with this set of short-lived 1870-1874 nickel 3¢ pieces! The now obsolete, copper-nickel 3¢ piece helped alleviate a severe coin shortage caused by hoarding during the Civil War. With the exception of the first two years, mintages never topped 4 million. And after 1870, when coins that had been hoarded returned to circulation, shortages eased and mintages of 3¢ pieces dropped to less than a million annually. In time, many were melted to strike 5¢ nickels – making these nickel 3¢ coins elusive for collectors today. The set brings you 5 consecutively dated coins – all hand selected.

Travel back to the days when Ulysses S. Grant was president, Yellowstone became a National Park and Jesse James pulls off the first successful train robbery with this 1870’s set with mintages that are dramatically lower – and SAVE off single prices.
