The Only Silver Three Cent Piece Coin With Display Box


The smallest-size U.S. silver coin ever minted, the 1851-1873 Silver 3-Cent piece, known as the “trime” or “fishscale” was struck to help bring small denomination coins back into circulation during and after the Civil War. Available in an exclusive presentation from The Bradford Exchange Mint, The Only Silver U.S. Three Cent Piece Coin makes a truly unique addition to your coin collection and it captures a significant era in U.S. history.Offered in Very Good Collector’s Condition, this silver 3-cent coin boasts Mint Engraver James B. Longacre’s distinctive Type 2 design, featuring a shield on a six-sided star on the obverse and the Roman numeral III on the reverse. Minted in 75% silver and 25% copper, later raised to 90% silver, it was hoped Americans would consider it real money, yet not worth melting down. However, confusion with the similar sized dime led to its demise. Presented in a crystal-clear tamper-proof holder to preserve its quality, this U.S. 3-cent coin also arrives with a mahogany-finished wooden display box. Strong demand is anticipated, so don’t delay.
