1888 Three Cent Nickel, Choice Uncirculated, PCGS MS-64

346.00

A scarce Business Strike example of this low mintage year, with only originally 36,500 struck. Very original with nothing serious in the way of marks present - the certified grade may be limited slightly by the presence of obvious heavy clash marks surrounding Liberty's head. These are common to the series, but some would find them mildly distracting. I find them interesting as it shows the nature of the production process by the Mint during this period. So much effort was going into making Morgan Dollars that minor coinage, particularly the "token" (non-Silver) coinage below the Dime denomination, was largely ignored as far as quality control. If it showed a date and denomination, it was OK to go. A few tiny specks from bank storage otherwise problem free and in an older light blue label holder. PCGS Price Guide value of $485.
