Description & Analysis

1872 had the lowest combined mintage of proofs and currency pieces for the entire silver three-cent series, though not the lowest proof mintage alone. How many of the latter were still on hand when this denomination became obsolete in 1873 is unknown, but these coins would have been destroyed.

As with most later dates of trime proofs, Cameo pieces are available but quite rare. Ultra Cameo coins are extremely rare.
