Here's your opportunity to own an exquisite, premium-quality Proof issue of a short-lived coin born of the Civil War. Hoarding of U.S. coinage during that monumental conflict led to some unusual and briefly minted denominations – including nickel 3¢ pieces issued from 1865-1889 to help make change and facilitate the purchase of 3¢ stamps. The obverse bears a classic image of Liberty wearing a coronet inscribed , while the reversedisplays the Roman numeral III within a laurel wreath.
Now prized mementos of the Civil War era in any condition, you can own one of the finest nickel 3¢ pieces in existence. These scarce low-mintage Proofs of 1879-1888 were specially struck in quantities of just 2,960 to 6,609 and have been carefully preserved for over 125 years. Featuring sharp, high-relief images and stunning detail, each Proof is handpicked by our experts for eye appeal and certified and encapsulated by PCGS orNGC. Supplies strictly limited – don't delay!
