1873 CLOSED 3 1C


Coventional thinking tells us that the 1873 Closed 3 coins were struck first, before the Open 3 variant. The small date logotypes caused confusion, as the date, to many, appeared to read "1878". The Mint corrected for this by opening the top and bottom loops of the 3 to preclude any possible confusion.
