1861 Silver Three-Cent Piece. In NGC encapsulation 5938164-002, graded MS 64.

From the Dr. Jay M. Galst Collection.

This coin was purchased by Jay Galst for his 1861 proof set. The coin indeed has many indications of being a proof. The transition from edges and devices is fairly sharp and the piece is very well struck. However NGC deemed this a regular circulation strike. The wildly mottled iridescent green, blue and orange toning makes this a very eye catching piece. Most likely the last circulating silver coin during the beginning of the American civil war, this coin is a rare survivor in this state of preservation. Choice and attractive.
