Description & Analysis

The mintage of currency pieces again fell drastically from the previous year, and 1884 three-cent pieces are rare in all grades. Mint State survivors are exceedingly rare, but the greater availability of proofs has limited both demand and prices for these tough coins.

The typical 1884 is sharply struck from fresh dies and looks more like a poorly-made proof than a true currency strike. Historically, there has been a great deal of mis-attribution between the two editions.
