In 1879, Edison successful produced a working light bulb, and Yellowstone became America`s first national park. That year, after a 2-year interruption, the Philadelphia Mint struck nickel three-cent pieces - albeit only 38,000 - for circulation again. Consider that mintage figure, and the fact that many 3¢ coins were melted in the late 1880s to reuse their metal for 5¢ nickels. Then, add to that loss through attrition and passage of time, and who knows how many really survive today. Don`t wait to get this low-mintage date, act now!
